Mason jar meals and more in the Instant Pot
Mason jars have been around for years!
John Mason patented his design for a glass jar that sealed tightly via a threaded zinc cap and jar mouth, making the process easier and parts reusable. Through the years following the first Mason jar the seal was improved over time. Then today as we have come to recognize The Ball mason jar. The Mason jar rival’s success caused the name Ball to be synonymous with Mason in reference to canning jars. We all use them, we have all seen them time and time again. We decorate with them, collect and more. They simply have become a household favorite for many reasons and purposes.
How neat to give a holiday hostess gift, or all year round thoughtful and easy gift idea. These are especially fantastic for all the busy Mom’s and wives we know hustling here and there and everywhere. Not always time to meal prep. How great to pull out a meal in a jar, dump and go. Our Instant Pots have made that even simpler. This season I have seen some amazing ideas. Home made vanilla extract, Moonshine, you name it, people are getting creative with their pots and gift ideas. Whether it be a meal, a home remedy, a jam, or more, you can find something creative to make and put in a mason jar all made from your Instant Pot.
I’ve already shared the scents of the season in a mason jar with you HERE
Elderberry syrup is a real hit in the Instant Pot. Known to boost your immune system and treat common colds and flu, this is always nice to have on hand.

I was inspired to create this post after a member of an the Instant Pot community posted that she had made these gifts for her and daughter and daughter-in-law who are both working gals with young children. What could be easier than a dump and go quick meal! I think this is just about the most thoughtful gift idea I have ever seen. Thank you Camilia Elliot for your thoughtful idea.
