Jar it up

I’m a proud member of the mason jar craze. Whether it’s for salad, cookie mix, or overnight oats, these trendy and adorable jars are a perfect way to store, transport and enjoy all your favorite foods. They also are great for presentation. I’ve added the ingredients of a beloved recipe, wrapped it up with a pretty recipe card attached using festive ribbon and given them as gifts to co-workers, teachers, mail carriers, hair stylists and more. For example, this lentil soup recipe is a great gift idea: Seal the jar and attach a recipe card with an inside joke or special memory. These Mason Jar Banana-Peanut Butter Cookies are another go-to present that everyone loves to receive.
