Glass Jars and Glass Containers.... How do you use them?

As an avid Food Preserver I have glass jars in large amounts everywhere! I have also found many other uses for them. The mason Jars are thick and durable and have many uses!
  • Canning
  • Freezing soups/Broth
  • Storing Herbs
  • Storing Dehydrated fruits
  • Vases
  • Display around the house
  • Homemade liquors
  • Homemade Candles
How about all those other fancy cute glass products! Some with spouts, differnt sizes, fat ones, skinny ones and of course the unique looking ones.

  • Making Simple Syrups
  • Vinegars
  • Liquors
  • Salad Dressings
  • Bath Salts
  • Sugar Scrubs
  • Cotton Balls

The possibilites for uses or endless!

How about large glass containers?
Currently I am using them to cure olives.
  • Terrariums
  • Sugar/Flour
  • Candy Jar

What do you use your glass jars and special glass containers for? Share your thoughts with me!

Happy Recycling!!!

  1. I'm always using old glass jars to propagate cuttings in water. Also use them to store colored gravel.
