And there’s more…

They are perfect for storing freshly pressed juices and smoothies, as well as homemade spice mixes, salad dressings, soup broth, gomasio and tofu mayonnaise;

Or for sprouting grains or seeds,

Or for fermenting foods such as pickles or sauerkraut,

Or for making homemade kombucha or chia seed pudding,

Or for serving elegant beverages, such as mojitos or homemade lemonade, at a party…

Or for their traditional functions of preserving homemade jams, jellies and spreads.

Yes, these jars are certainly classics and are useful for so many things! I love the limited edition vintage style blue mason jars, but you may prefer the clear ones to accurately see the colors of your foods and juices. The clear ones might be better if you want to keep jars filled with pasta, grains, candy and other “goodies” for full viewing in your kitchen as decoration.

You would be surprised at some of the creative ways that people use these fabulous jars. In fact, I found several Pinterest boards devoted specifically to ways and ideas for using them.

Hope you enjoyed reading about my new purchase!
