Mason Jars

I love mason jars. Something about them is timeless. They make me think of days gone by.

I recently discovered that I had mason jars sitting on my pantry shelf and I didn't even know it! Did you know that Classico Spaghetti Sauce is canned in Atlas Mason Jars? They are great looking jars that can be used for a variety of things. They are perfect for storing extra homemade chicken broth, making from-scratch dressings, etc. I save the Classico lids and reuse them for my personal use. If I want them to look extra pretty, I buy the Ball canning lids and use them with a pretty circle of fabric for an old-fashioned look.

For Christmas this year, I made Southern Spiced Tea Mix and gave it as gifts in these mason jars. I have given away soups in them to friends who are sick. Sugar Coated Pecans look beautiful placed in these with a pretty fabric on the lid. These are very useful and environmentally friendly jars. I feel so much better saving my spaghetti sauce jars rather than throwing them away.

I have a fond Mason jar memory. When a family member was recovering from an illness, an dear old friend (you know of the church ladies) brought him a Mason jar full of homemade vanilla custard. I had never heard of it before, but it was just the yummy comfort food he needed!
