Love Mason Jars? How about using those jars for something besides storage and start making simple or elegant meals with them.

When I was younger, Mason Jars were only used to can whatever came out the garden. My mom taught me how to preserve a few things and so, the tradition was passed on. And then……I realized you could use those marvelous jars for other things. Storage being the biggest way to use them.

So why not make meals in the jars? Its been going on for so long now and such an easy way to serve to a party too. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. But for me, serving small Mason Jar desserts sounds so special when you are having a small casual dinner party.

Here are a few recipes I found to share for all kinds of tastes.

    1. I am such a huge fan of Monkey Bread and was so glad I came across that recipe. Plan on using it during the holidays.

  1. Mason Jar is rock on. I have a few for my lunch, dessert and juice. So many combinations of every type of food for different occasions.

  2. I have always wanted to try overnight oats in a mason jar. There are so many different combinations out there and they ALL sound so good! I am getting hungry just thinking about it, actually haha.

  3. I am awful at planning meals but if I was still working outside the home I think this would have been a great way to pack up lunches. They all sound so good too.

  4. These are great! I have gone to events before where they have served salads in a mason jar but I’ve never had a meal in a jar. I’ve served desserts in small mason jars and the presentation is a lot of fun.

  5. I’ll have to try my hand at some mason jar salads. I have a ton of mason jars around from when I attempted to do some canning so I might as well use them.

  6. Never heard of this concept before but I think it’s a fabulous one! Shepherd’s pie in a jar? Yes please! Thanks for sharing this, definitely trying this xx

  7. Everything I can think about with using mason jars, and more! This is so creative! It is obvious you’ve put some thought and time to doing this. Thanks for your creativity! Now, I’m ready to have some fun! 😀

  8. I love mason jars for creating great snacks or meals on the go. I usually pick a few glass and plastic ones and make salads and dressings.

  9. Okay, I’m officially hungry now. These all look incredible but that S’Mores cake in a jar is really pulling me in. I’ll have to try them Monday for our cookout.

  10. Oh my! I never knew that so many meals can be in a mason jar, this looks so good, I’d love to try it for my family and I. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
