Old Jars

I spent some time last week visiting my mother in Ohio.

My mother has a new tablemate, a woman in her early 90's who was living in her own home until she moved into my mother's assisted living facility a week ago. Apparently she and her daughter and son-in-law are just beginning the process of emptying the contents of the house including a collection of canning jars. They've suggested I can pick up the jars on my next trip.

I'm not sure what to do. I've seen a lot of old canning jars in a lot of old cellars and most of them are unusable. I guess if they're still available in May I'll take them; Ohio still doesn't do much recycling.
