Mason Jar Nation: The Jars that Changed America and 50 Clever Ways to Use Them Today is very well researched with an extensive history of canning jars. Who would have thought that canning jars were invented because of a challenge issued by Napoleon. The history is great. Mason jars really did do a lot to change America, amazing.
The craft section of the book is great, recipes are included, each with their own individual history. The crafts range from very simple children’s crafts and easy ideas for adults to more complex and requiring some skills with tools. There are very cute gift jar ideas and crafts like Moonbeam Stakes, Moroccan Lantern Trio, Sparkling Outdoor Chandelier and many others.
