In a Jar

May 2, 2012

Remember a few posts back when I showed you the drinking lid for a mason jar and all the inventive uses for mason jars these days? Well I decided to look up some ideas for using the jars to serve and store food. I think these would be perfect for weekday lunches and summertime picnics.

Margaritas in a Jar
Refrigerator Oatmeal
Cornbread Topped Chili In a Jar
Salad In a Jar
I love the label design on this one. Maybe if I served salad from a well designed jar Jake would eat more of it...just maybe.

Have you ever tried using jars like this before? Do you have any tips or recipes to share?


  1. Love these! Especially the salad jar :)

  2. Have never tried this, but have seen the very small jars with potato salad, pasta salad, banana pudding etc, lidded and then iced in a galvanized tub; VERY cute! This would be perfect for the hot summer days that are just around the corner:)

    1. This would be for individual servings.

  3. I've definitely made the overnight oats in a jar and they are wonderful! :)

    1. Thanks Darby. Good to know! I really want to make them. I just got some jars.
