On our recent trip to visit family,
I found some doll-sized mason jars!
I used the opportunity to teach more to my daughter about canning. I come from a long line of farmers, and I have fond memories of my grandmother feeding us from her "pantry" of glass jars. My mother cans from her garden harvest each year, and I am slowly getting into the practice of doing it myself. I wanted to explain to my daughter more about how food was preserved before refrigeration. She enjoys learning a bit of history while "playing" with her dolls, and WE enjoy being in the kitchen together actually canning!
For a brief history of the canning jar, you can visit here:
If you are interested in getting some doll-sized mason jars for yourself....
they are actually toothpick holders!
Google: mason jar toothpick holder (they run about $5-9/ea.)
Happy CANNING!! :)
