Canning jars can be used for many purposes: to can and store foods, to combine ingredients to create meals, salad dressings, or marinades; as serving containers; and to store and organize any number of small household goods such as buttons, pens and pencils, spices and oils.

So, you can imagine my excitement when I was given the chance to try Global Grub’s DIY Sushi Rolls Kit.
