how do i test a homemade snapple capacitor?

attach to a 555 oscillator cct and check the frequency - this will allow you to calculate the value of the cap.

Charge it to a few 1000 v and discharge it with a shorting bar.
The spark should be convincing.

A Leyden jar style cap ? What do you want to test ? Its capacity ?

Measure its charging curve with an oscilloscope.
