The only foods I buy in cans are fish (sardines, tuna, salmon) which are only available in cans here
I buy anchovies (fish4eva brand) in glass but unsure what the lid lining is made of, it appears plastic.

I buy pumpkin in cans. That's about it other than black beans sometimes. Wish I could buy it (pumpkin) some other way all year long.

You may want to cook the pumpkin when it is in season and freeze it for later.

Here is frozen pumpkin for sale in bpa free packaging.

http://www.amazon.com/Square-One-Organics-individual-servings/dp/B002VANQW6

I think square one products are sold at whole foods.

Don't like the little paks from square one-
Here's someplace you can order frozen pumpkin ten tons at a time.

I think that is true pretty well every where. The only fish I have ever seen in glass bottles was some Herring I bought recently.

On the other hand on a risk/benefit basis I am pretty sure you are better off to go with canned fish than to go without. Esp. if you live very far inland canned and frozen are the only reasonable option.

When you order a ton, C#, you can let us know and we will buy from you!

I think you can get frozen pumpkin in one pound packages at Asian and Indian markets. They often have a broader selection of frozen vegetables than regular supermarkets.

I my experience Asian markets have an extensive selection of fish and seafood as well.

I would not be sure what a lot of the stuff is or where it came from but by sheer volume it is way more extensive than anything I have seen elsewhere.

Ordinarily not a large problem. Leaded glass (not normally used for food storage) can leach lead.  There are other cases also, if you want to worry.

If I have anything canned, in goes a generous seasoning of turmeric! Without fail.

The only glass with lead that I've heard about is fancy leaded crystal. Cheap glass is perfectly safe for use with foods.

I think you are perfectly right here. Coloured glasses use Lead compounds for for effect But clear glass. preserve bottles and commercial glass bottles are perfectly neutral and safe.

All you have to do is put together a collection and keep using them and you are free to go. Cheap is effective.

I buy food in glass containers whenever possible, and then save the jars to re-use. Baby food jars are great for storing small amounts of leftovers.

I will admit that I'm not completely plastic-free. I do purchase some food items in plastic, but I don't save those containers. I also have some plastic re-usable food storage containers (less risk of breakage when packed in school lunches) and I do use plastic bags. I try to limit my use of plastic since I know that eliminating it isn't realistic for me right now.
