Mason Jar Love

My husband likes to tease that I have a magnet in my head that immediately draws me to every Mason jar in the area at each flea market, garage sale and antique store. I love them all: the ones that are safe to can with, the ones with the wire baling, the clear ones, the blue ones. All of them. Which probably explains my fascination with desserts in jars. Could there possibly be a cuter way to serve single serving desserts? I think not.





And don’t forget, Mason jars also make for some incredibly cute gift packaging!

What's your favorite dessert (or gift) in a jar?

    The jars are indispensible for storing just about everything, besides being great for canning. I have never made a dessert baked in a jar yet, but aim to sometime.

    I want to go straight to my kitchen and cook up some of these mouth-watering recipes! Its a rainy autumn day and I'd love to surprise my boys with a treat or two when they get home from school. :)

    Something somebody canned! I learned how to can last summer and really enjoyed it. Cherry almond jam, cinnamon anise jam and pepper jelly are next on my canning list!

    I've never received a gift in a jar. But I like the idea. I remember them being around my cousins and grandfathers as a kid. And back a few yrs ago they became popular in restaurants to serve iced tea in.

    That is an awesome Idea. I never thought of dessert in a jar before. I use them to store things after they are opened. Like a bag of brown sugar instead of trying to close the bag. Also I make lots of apple butter and peach butter.... But I but jars everywhere I can find them also.
