That is when I got my first mason jar and my hunt for mason jars began. At work they had some the exact same size as leftovers and I scavenged them. That's all I really needed was to have four mason jars to get myself started. I found out that I don't really make more than a few days worth to maintain freshness.
I experimented with making homemade chunky apple sauce and pear sauce to go in the mason jars. Now since it's winter, I read online someone who experimented with canned peaches. What a fabulous idea for those winter months when nothing local is in season!
Here's the recipe:
1 can of sliced peaches
1/4 cup of Greek plain yogurt
1/2 cup of Terra Breads granola
1 mason jar
Layer the ingredients in a mason jar (in reality I don't really measure and just eyeball it to my taste).
2-4 sliced peaches, dollop of Greek yogurt, more peaches, and then granola on top.
My husband loves grabbing one on the go for an easy breakfast or snack. No cooking required.
