Mason jars are the perfect storage solution to have on hand when you want something to be both practical and attractive. If you’re making jam, relish, chutney or any other kind of preserve, mason jars are the perfect jars for bottling. Cellophane can so easily be punctured and its airtight seal broken, whereas mason jars provide a sturdier long-term preservation and storage solution. Just make sure that the lid and the seal are both completely clean and flush against the jar before screwing it shut. Mason jars have also become all the rage as a salad container to take to work and make you the envy of your colleagues with your gourmet creations. Layer up a green salad or fruit salad and take it to work fully sealed and ready to eat.
Other creative uses for mason jars
The jars are incredibly versatile – most mason jars are manufactured with some kind of pattern or embellishment in the glass, so they are perfect to use at a special occasion too. They can be used as candle holders or decorative lanterns and will stop the flames from going out whilst also preventing any candle-related accidents. You can also use the jars to create individual portions for desserts such as trifle, mousse or tiramisu to serve at a special event, or fill them with sweet treats as take home party favours, like a grown up and very sophisticated version of a lolly bag. Treat-filled mason jars also make great gifts, so stock up on a set of jars and have them on hand for any occasion!
