Is that somebody gave to my mom to prepare for winter and they are already in jars.

You might check descriptions of Clitocybe gibba or Lepista flaccida, as a preliminary guess.

Other things to notice: when they break (when fresh), do they exude a milky latex?
are they brittle, i.e. do they break easily? Or flexible?
When you place them on a white piece of paper, what color spore print do they make?
