100 Best Mason Jar Recipes, Tips, and Ideas on the Internet

Have you notice just how many Mason jar recipes there are? It seems that every singe blog has them — and for good reason. The foods in jars are easy to transport, super cute, and fun to make. Let’s just call it Mason Jar Mania, shall we?

You guys know that I did the first 50 Best … recipes post way back in 2007. There have been others since then, both here and on other blogs but I still think that mine cover the most territory. I try to introduce you to new blogs that you might not see otherwise. This post is double the usual because there are just so many recipes, ideas, and tips that you can’t stop at 50… Well, I couldn’t anyway. There was always one more to add.

Mason jars are easy to find almost anywhere and they are very inexpensive. They are eco-friendly, store easily, and don’t transfer flavors. You won’t have to worry about onion flavored creme brulees ever again.
