Can I use glass jars for freezing foods?
Glass jars made especially for freezing are now available and they may be used for freezing foods. Be extra careful when handling them in the freezer. Glass jars tend to break easily when cold. Do not use them for foods packed in water. Water expands when frozen and the jars may break even when you leave adequate headspace. Wide mouth jars are recommended.
