Did You Know?
Mason jars seem to be just about everywhere now, from your grandmother's kitchen cabinets to these darling wedding centerpieces. Have you ever wondered how Mason jars got their start, though? In 1858, John Landis Mason, a tinsmith from Philadelphia invented and patented a screw-finish glass jar. This is why, no matter the brand, these screw-top glass jars are referred to overwhelmingly as "Mason" jars. He was only 26 years old at the time!
Before the invention of the Mason jar, wax sealers were widely used to secure the tin lids. Because the process of wax sealing was complicated, the use of Mason jars with screw-on lids took over the home canning industry. There have also only been a few minor tweaks to the original jar design in the last 150 years. Today, the jars are used for a variety of purposes (besides canning) including short-term food storage, decoration, and baking!
