Mason Jars

If you’ve ever been the recipient of one of our Support Suppers then you may have some unoccupied mason jars in your kitchen. I love mason jars. They are so versatile as a kitchen tool, serving bowl or even decorative accent for entertaining.

I’ve always known they are great for shaking up a quick salad dressing, but when I found this week’s cooking tip, it never occurred to me to use one for whipping fresh cream. What a convenient way to make the perfect amount of fresh whipped cream for fresh fruit desserts without having to clean a mixer and mixing blade afterward.

Select an appropriately sized mason jar, pour the desired amount of fresh whipping cream into a mason jar without filling it beyond halfway, seal it tight and shake until the desired consistency is achieved. If you keep shaking it long enough, you can take it all the way to butter.

Our lineup this week will refresh your palate and get you excited to welcome Summer this weekend. Check out what’s cooking through the end of June at or explore our Gift Meal and Custom Catering options. We look forward to delighting you and your loved ones soon, thank you for your Support.
