Discover how easy it is to transform your new or used canning jars into hardworking glassware with these clever mason jar accessories.
Mason Jars – Not Just for Canning Anymore
When canning season arrives, there’s always the hustle and bustle of getting fresh produce canned and stored for later usage. But as I have found out from experience, not all jars—Ball or Mason Jars as they are also known—get used.
What to do?
Don’t just store them for a rainy day or until next year. Use them now.

And, if you research for ways to utilize your unused glassware, you might be surprised how one lowly mason jar can make one’s life easier in so many ways with a twist of a specialty lid.
