Here are just a few things we use mason jars for on the homestead:

1. Drinking

We use these green mason jars for everyday drinking. We have the pint and quart size in the cupboard for our dishes. You can also get purple ones too. I heard that Ball was discontinuing these soon, so don’t miss out.

I drink my protein shakes each morning out of a mason jar with this lid and straw. I love it because I can take it on the go!

2. Food Storage

If you look in my fridge (scary!) you will see several different sized mason jars with leftovers in them. So handy, especially if you get the white lids for easy storage.

3. Canning

Of course, we can’t talk about mason jars without talking about canning! I love canning the harvest. It is so rewarding to see all of the jars lined up on the shelf, ready for winter.

4. Lights

My husband made this chandelier from mason jars. He got the tutorial here and used a piece of wood for the base.

I love to have fresh flowers in the house and a mason jar (big or small) makes a great flower vase.
