Mason jars are a staple of American history. They are designed to preserve food and can be utilized for a variety of other uses. Patented in 1858 by John Mason, the Mason jar has changed how individuals prepare and save their food from spoiling. Today, many use them to decorate with or serve food. We wanted to share our top three recipes you can easily create and serve in Mason jars this summer. What could be better than breakfast, lunch, and dinner all in one place?
