How To Bake A Yummy Berry Cake Right Inside A Mason Jar
Who made the mason jar? A Mason did, of course. Tinsmith John Landis Mason patented the super useful jar in 1858. Mason jars are made of soda-lime glass and often the same 2 3/8 inch inner, 2 3/4 inch outer diameter with a wide variety of volumes including cup, pint, quart, and half-gallon. Mason jars' threaded neck and screw on lid make it ideal for home canning to preserve food. Often sold through antique stores and online, collectors eagerly seek mason jars. Colored jars have been considered better for canning use, as they block some light from reaching the food, which helps to retain flavor and nutritional value longer. I have never heard of mason jars used like they are in this video.
