I'm sure no one needs to see anymore photos of my homemade applesauce. (Today I made some with raisens.) However, I thought it would be nice to to share this idea for quick & easy gifts:
Everyone has heard of Gifts In A Mason Jar but this year, with economy the way it is, it's a pretty & inexpensive gift for neighbors or for folks who you'd just like do a little something for.
I made my own label using some cardstock and a "From My Kitchen" sticker:
I apologize for my blurry photo. My hands still shake a lot. I must have taken 10 photos and they all came out a little blurry.
Anyway, I added glitter to the label and some ribbons and do-do's and just tapped it to the jar.
Please remember, with "wet food" gifts, although this isn't technically "canning", you still have to boil the jar and lid for a few minutes.
So what else can one do with a Mason Jar? I have tons of cool ideas. Stay tuned!
