    Those are Weck jars. You can buy them from Heath ceramics online or directly from Weck by the dozen. I already did some of my Christmas canning in them and they are just beautiful

    How much salt do I use? And are the orange slices supposed to just be whole natural shaped wedges with unbroken membranes, or do I then slice the wedges into thinner slices? I wasn't sure of the directions on cutting 'lengthwise' on a spherical object, and then saying to cut them into thin slices. I want to make this for a hostess gift tonight; a quick reply would be most helpful. Thanks so much! -Krystal :)

    Carmencita, you can definitely use the compote as the filling for a vanilla cake -- it would be delicious with a fluffy whipped-cream frosting! KatherineJane, look for little jars like these at kitchenware shops, or online at or (search for "jam jars"). Hope that helps!
