Mason Jars: The Mundane, The Beautiful

Mason Jar: a glass jar used in canning to preserve food

There is something undeniably comforting about the Mason jar. Doesn't it remind you of childhood, when your mom or your grammy made fresh jellies and jams? These simple looking glass jars hold memories of family excursions to the local farm where you ate more strawberries than you brought home; memories of the sweet aroma of fresh fruit, sugar, and hot water steeping together; memories of finally tasting those delectable jams, preserves, marmalades made with love, by a love, for a love.
