Works For Me Wednesday-Keep Those Mayo Jar Lids!



I love using Mason jars for storing dry goods, leftovers and MYO mixes. But I had trouble with using the lids(top and ring) and keeping things fresh.

My solution- keep the lids off the plastic mayo jars. They fit the regular mouth jars perfectly! And they can be used again and again!

Smart idea! I was soooo disappointed when He**ma**n's switched to plastic. I even complained to them, to no avail. But at least the lids still work!

Most jars are standardized - and so are most blenders, so you can use Mason jars in place of the pitcher.

That is a great idea!! Thank you for that tip! I am always struggling with that ring and lid combo. I can't wait to try a mayo lid on them!

Great idea! I have loads of canning jars and like you I did not like to store things with the ring and lid.
