Trend Alert: Serving Food in Mason Jars

1 Jul

This week we ate at Empire State South, and couldn’t get over the fun appetizer they serve called “In Jars,” where a variety of dips (pimento cheese, boiled peanut hummus, trout mousse, pickled vegetables and more) are served in little half pint mason jars.

Then I noticed in my DailyCandy email that a company called Sugar Lily Bakery is now selling cupcakes in mason jars, a trend I’ve seen around the blog-o-sphere recently.


Of course, there’s always the classic drinks-in-a-mason jar, usually accompanied by colorful straws.

A few more interesting mason jar ideas from Giver’sLog… chili with cornbread in a jar and BBQ in a jar.



What else can be made more adorable, simply by serving it in a jar?
