Bring The Taste Of Fall To Your Coffee At Home
Beauty Brite Disclosure

The season of Pumpkin Spice is upon us but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a small fortune in the popular coffee chains drive-thru. I know for me, the costs add up fast when it comes to getting my coffee fix. However, getting a taste of Falls trademarked beverage is easier than ever these days. A quick trip through your local grocery chains dairy section is all it takes.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Word on the block is that a popular coffee chain dropped their yearly release of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. YUM! The symbol that fall is quickly approaching. Pumpkins will be on doorsteps, apple cinnamon candles lit, and Halloween decorations out in the no time. Did you there is one other way to sneak some pumpkin into your life?

Creating And Canning Seasonal Flavors

Creating And Canning Seasonal Flavors-Ball Collection Elite Sharing Mason Jars-Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee

Beauty Brite Disclosure

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. The uses are just about endless and are only limited within the bounds of your imagination.

I enjoy making jams and jellies as well as canning pickles, so these are the ways I most often use canning jars. But, I also have one that I keep spools of thread and sewing needles in for quick access to materials to mend garments and stuffed animals that develop holes with repeated use.

Ball Collection Elite Design Series Sharing Mason Jars

Canning jars make great gift receptacles for many types of small gifts. Not only do you minimize waste since wrapping paper or gift bags aren’t required, but you can use other small and simple things to dress it up such as ribbon, twine, and/or a gift tag. This minimalist approach allows you to let the gift itself (rather than the wrapping) take center stage. In addition, gift recipients can keep the jar to re-use in their own home in any way that is useful to them.

I’m going to show you two ways that I like to use canning jars utilizing the new Ball® Collection Elite Design Series Sharing Jars. First, I’m going to use one to combine the ingredients to make a delicious fall drink using Mocha Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee. Then, I will illustrate how I use them to make gift-worthy food items, like the Spiced Pear Butter I recently made, that are great gifted on their own or as an item in a larger gift basket to friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances alike….
