Got a canning question, which is the preferred jar for canning with?

Quarts

Pints

Half Gallon

Or are there other sizes you prefer, due to weight or storage?

Thanks

Quarts mostly because they are everywhere.

Pints for items that may be sitting too long open before the food is used (examples: jelly, meat and some veggies since we won't eat a quart of peas for dinner).

Gallons and half gallons for dried goods or whatever (like right now, I'm on an iced coffee kick.  I store the cold coffee in a gallon jar in the fridge because I don't want the taste of plastic from a typical drink container).

Quarts for most things, including flour and other dry goods. Pints for apple sauce, etc. 1/2 gallons mostly for dry goods such as egg noodles and barley. I have some smaller sizes as well but we haven't used them for anything as of yet.
