As I have told you before, I get the biggest pleasures from the smallest things. Last Saturday proved to be one of those times. I decided to go to a yard sale just down the road from me and I was so glad I did. There on a lonely shelf sat 13 blue canning jars with their original lids. The price was right and I found myself with all 13.
I'm not sure why but I have always loved glass whether it be clear or colored, but with these blue jars I felt like I had found a treasure. I shared a few with my kids, then washed them up and began to fill them with the simple things I had on my pantry shelves, like rice, barley, beans and more. Then I proudly displayed them on top of my refrigerator. Who would have thought that 13 blue canning jars could make someone so happy!
KEEP GRAINS FRESH
You too can purchase grains and beans in bulk and store them in glass jars with lids. Bugs and critters will stay out while you keep freshness in!
