You should be able to find 8oz and 4oz jars wherever they sell canning
supplies. Here in Oregon most of the groceries have a section. The
smaller jars are usually used for jams and jellies. For vegetable such
as you describe you would need to use a pressure canner. I picked mine
up at a yard sale for $5.00. In the stores they probably cost about $40.
Either Ball or Kern offers a small book for about $5.00 with directions
on how to can most foods. The offer is usually on a box of canning jars
or lids. Good luck with making your own baby food!
