What Would You Weck?
“What would you Weck?” Since the classic, German canning jars are one of our most versatile kitchen favorites, we posed this question to our store and home office employees as an imaginative and inspiring part of Styer’s Heirloom Tomato Festival. From bakeware to aquariums, we were blown away by the ingenuity of the entries and can’t wait to try some of the ideas ourselves.
