Decorating with Canning Jars

I LOVE canning jars.  I am always finding uses for them, they just make me happy.  They make a perfect vase for weeds flowers from my babies, or shaking up a batch of dressing.  I threw together some decorations for Thanksgiving using things I had here and the canning jars came to the rescue again. 🙂

I used a square of unfinished burlap, then filled my canning rack with wide mouth quart jars.  I added 1/2 cup red lentils, then rested cinnamon tea lights on top of the lentils.

I always have a spread of snacks and appetizers out while I’m making a holiday dinner.  Some cooked, some not.  Satsuma mandarins, pistachios or other nuts, pumpkin seeds, our FAVORITE gingersnaps.  I think I might try using the canning rack filled with jars of snacks for a fun snack tray next time.

  1. Oooh, I just loved riedang this ieenrvitw. It is so interesting to me to hear how people got into (or back into) canning and preserving their own foods. This is such an important movement, and I love that I’m seeing more and more people leaning towards doing this. I think it sends a big statement out there to the people who are making the foods for the supermarkets.
