Karrie SteelyNot only are glass jars useful, but they make whatever I fill them with beautiful. If light is streaming through or just reflecting off the contents, the jar makes something merely functional into an aesthetic experience.

Karrie, jars at my house are made for left overs. Once the meal is served, if left overs are put in jars and lids put on them immediately. The still warm food will seal the lid of the jar. Left overs will remain good in the refrigerator for at least four weeks instead of just four days in a Ziploc container. I use an empty store bought pickle jar for coffee that is just large enough to fit one pot of coffee minus one cup. I drink one cup of coffee each morning but I make it by the pot. The rest of the pot goes in the jar and the pickle jar lid will seal as the coffee cools. It keeps it nice and fresh just as it was when first brewed. ***** Have a great glass jar day.
