Chinese Water-sealed Canning Jar

Every country has its pickled items. I ran across this at a friend’s house and thought the jar was really curious so I asked about it.

It turns out that this is a jar of pickled garlic. To prevent the smell from inundating the apartment, it has its own “water seal”. Essentially, the lid is an upside-down bowl sitting in a rim of water.

The symbol on the lid means “wealth” or “prosperity”. A rather ingenious jar!

I’m sure the garlic is delicious as well.
