The seal is airtight and the clear glass
lets you know exactly what you have in the pantry.
I haven't ventured into the world of canning yet,
but I'm looking forward to exploring
the hundreds of ways that my jars can be filled
with scrumptious and nutritious goodies.
Here are a few choice ideas:
1. A bit of wire and some sand (or pebbles) turns Mason jars into lanterns for tea lights or votives.
2. Place cutlery at a party or picnic.
3. Turn a quart-sized jar into a seed sprouter.
4. Construct an on-the-wall storage idea using pipe straps and a length of scrap wood.
5. Bake pies in a jar.
6. Serve ice cream, or jar up tea or lemonade, or pitchers of mixers for drinks; just stir in the spirits!
7. Hang the jars with wire, then fill with string lights along a length of rope or clothes line.
8. Catch those pesky fruit flies that often come home with you from the market.
9. We keep our cotton and cotton swabs
10. This closet freshener was recently shared.
Jars have as many uses as folks who can dream them up.
There's a reason why they've been used
through the years.
Some things just never go out of style...
Here's a great post on ideas for the humble mason jar.
