Having a Ball!

Canning jars or "Ball' jars are one of my favorite items in my kitchen. I use them for just about everything.  I love them because they can be used at room temperature, frozen, refrigerated and heated.  They come in so many sizes but only require two lid sizes.  If you happen to break one (which is pretty hard to do) they are easily replaced.  Many of my jars were free.  I don't love them because they were free but it certainly doesn't hurt.  I use them for everything and I am sure you will too.

  • crème brule

  • cupcakes
  • pot pies
  • meat pies

I love to bake in them and then put a lid on them and take them with me!

  • Now that's prepping ahead.  So easy and such a time saver on busy mornings.

  • Seasoning Mixes


Last but not least put them in the freezer and pull them out whenever you want a frosty brew! Okay it might be a bit cold outside for a cold one but tomorrow will be day 18 since we have had school. I might have to make a coffee with a splash of Irish cream. Of coarse I will drink it out of a jar and have ball doing it; but now I just need to decide what size?
Take it One Prep at a Time,
