LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

REPLACE YOUR BLENDER JAR WITH A MAYONNAISE JAR

We knew about this a long time ago but it never occur to us that it isn't a common knowledge. Here is a wonderful tip if you ever need to replace your blender jar. We got this set of instructions from Simply Recipe. A mason or mayonnaise jar works just as well.

Tip: 
Blender and Mason Jar

Did you know that many, if not most, blenders can be used with a standard mason jar, or wide-mouthed mason jar? This is a trick my mother taught me. Apparently 40 years ago or so, about the time this blender pictured was bought, manufacturers used to include a mason jar in the box with the blender. Mom recalls even a booklet that listed the many things one could make with the mason jar blender, including ground spices, whipped cream, and peanut butter. We use this trick most often to make whipped cream. The blender whips it right in the jar, so if we have extra, it's already in a jar for storage. And it is easier when it comes to making small quantities.
I was complaining the other day that I needed a spice grinder. My mother reminded me of the mason jar trick and it worked perfectly. Here's how to do it. I'm using walnuts to demonstrate, but you could use this trick with just about anything you want to blend, chop, or grind.
