Over the past few months I’ve found a new love. Mason jars. Or better yet, any glass jar I buy that I can reuse.
I use them to store my soaked and dehydrated nuts in, dried fruits that I buy in bulk at the health food store, and homemade seasonings. Sometimes my fridge is overflowing with them since I normally have 2 half gallon jars for milk plus an assortment of quart sized jars for my kefir, buttermilk, yogurt, and heavy cream. I also use them to store leftover gravies and sauces. Mason jars can also be easily put in the freezer (although if it’s liquid, don’t fill till full!) just use the plastic lids, not the metal ones. They also fit easily into any cupboard or lazy susan, plus they are see through so no guessing or having to label everything.
