Food Preservation and the Mason Jar

New Mexico. Mrs. Fidel Romero Proudly Exhibits...

My craft room almost looks like this!

I discovered canning last spring and had all the zeal of the newly converted. I canned a lot. I mean a LOT! Jam, jelly, salsa, many varieties of pickles, tomato sauce, preserves, ketchup and even barbecue sauce. I’ll be posting some of my favorite recipes soon because in no time flat we will be back in strawberry season. Can I get a hallelujah?

One aspect of all this canning is the accumulation of jars and rings as we eat through what we put up so many months ago. I know we will reuse the jars this season, but really, the Mason jar is just a darn convenient invention. I’ve been looking for inexpensive upcycling ideas to use with our Girl Scout troop and came across this article. Check it out. If you’re snowed in thanks to NEMO and need a few fun craft projects, this will get you started!
