Jars

When you first think of jars – the kitchen might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But think again!

We all know good old fashion mason jars are ideal for canning jam or pickling vegetables – but did you know they can be used for so much more? Next time you whip up a big batch of your favorite morning smoothie, portion it into a few mason jars and keep in the fridge. My Jump Start Smoothie is so simple to make! You can also layer in yogurt, granola, and fruit for an easy parfait.

Or how about some d’lish overnight oats – portioned into jars and easy to grab when you’re on the go. Now that’s a weekday breakfast – done simple!

Next time you want to make a salad dressing – forget the whisk and let the jar do all the work for you! You’ll get quite the arm workout shakin’ it up.

You can even bake directly inside jars – that’s right! Banana bread, custards, cakes – these days there are tons of recipes perfectly portioned for the mighty mason jar.

So think outside of the box and put those trusty jars to good use!
