Mason jars have found a new place in our hearts; they went from being a great place to store your homegrown beets and wait for the end of the world to being a multitasking vessel. You can put candles and junk in them, use them in your wedding, turn them into tiki torches — the world is truly the Mason jar's oyster.
Without a doubt, my favorite thing to put into Mason jars is food — and moreover, breakfast, because I am not a morning person, and these make-ahead breakfasts are so effortless.
