My Mason Jar Story
I decided to make this site to share with others my love of mason jars after a heartbreaking event in my family. My grandmother passed away not long ago leaving us all heartbroken. We would miss her, her smile and laugh, her home, and the greens from her wonderful garden.
As we rummaged through her belongings to savor a memory of her, I spotted a box of those famous blue Bell Mason Jars she packed them collards into!
My heart leapt! My grandmother was an avid canner, and I spent many summers breaking beans and canning them in mason jars to last us the year. I am so fond of those memories, and I knew I just had to have that box of mason jars! Just seeing them made my mouth water in rememberance of the buttery goodness of lima beans and collard greens, and some good ole cornbread.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t blessed with the green thumb that my grandmother was, so canning in a mason jar is not really an option for me. Instead, I turned my thoughts to other things that I could do with these versatile jars.
Where was I to look? An internet search for “mason jars” turned up an unbelievable amount of results, far too many for me to search through, so I decided to compile a site on my own so I didn’t have to keep sifting through the millions of sites already out there. And this is where you save time, by enjoying Mason Jars Dot Org, dedicated to my grandmother.
