Just three years ago, mason jars were solely used for canning purposes – you would only see them in factories or on shelves at grocery stores. But thanks to the internet and the ‘hipster’ movement, people have started using mason jars for almost anything. From light fixtures to food storage, the mason jar movement has come a long way. Take these meals to work or serve them at parties – either way, they’re guaranteed to be a hit.
