I especially love these recipes for picnics. From mason jar meals to desserts in a jar, any of these delicious recipes can easily be packed in your picnic basket to take on-the-go. Mason jars are the perfect container to tote a salad or breakfast, and you can even bake a cake right in them!
Mason jar recipes are also great for entertaining! Serve these at a summer cookout or potluck and your guests are sure to swoon. Desserts in a jar are always show-stoppers, no matter what you put in them. What’s even better, these recipes taste as good as they look (or better)! So go ahead and dust off those jars to create portable treats perfect for all summer long.
