18" Doll: Mason Jars

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!! :)
