    I hope you don't mean cars.

    They deliver.

    It is usually far cheaper to buy jars and empty and clean them. You get 680ml jars of carrots for about 80c in tescos, they clean up well, pickled stuff smells more. You should wash the lids and soak in baking soda to remove any off flavours.

    I think since Irish Bottlers closed a couple of years ago, the only glass company (set up when I.B closed) is one of Sean Quinn's companies up in the North of Ireland.

    Can't be of any more help, but I'm sure Google can help you further narrow the field for you.

    My mother has about 90 billion of the féckers stored in an outhouse. :D You'll have to collect though.

    Tesco value range has tonnes of things in glass jars for approx 60c upwards (sliced beetroot for instance). that might be your best bet.

    Yep I checked all of tesco before and it is the cheapest per volume, but it is pickled so the taste/smell is a bit harder to remove. I think it is €1.50 for a 1kg jar.

    Borrow some from the local recycling centre and wash and sterilize them and use grease proof paper and elastic band to keep in whatever home produce you are doing!

    Blackberry Jam or Chutney I betcha :)
