The Mason Jar Project


Canning our own fruits and vegetable was just a way of life when I was a small girl, this is what I remember my mom using a Mason jar for. Learn more about canning your own food at HomeCanning.com.

Well Mason jars are not just for canning anymore! This last year they have really made a comeback (again), so dig out your moms old jars and have some fun with them.
