Mason jars are magic!
For over 100 years mason jars (a.k.a. canning jars) have been made in two lid sizes.
This means that mason jars are one of the most versatile containers on the planet!
It's really, REALLY simple.
And once you know, you'll get why mason jars are so amazing!
All modern mason jars are either 'regular mouth' (the smaller of the two sizes) or 'wide mouth' (the larger of the two sizes)
You can change the volume of the jar and the function of the lid in infinite combinations knowing that everything labeled regular mouth will fit together, and everything labeled wide mouth will fit together.
Yes there are a few vintage exceptions to this rule, and commercial jars are a whole different world entirely, for details on exceptions click here.
I LOVE my Mama Bear Tumbler! It's gorgeous, just the right size, and the best part is that it's DISHWASHER-safe! :)

Easy to get the hard-to-find lids!
I was so surprised and pleased to find the Mason Jar lids on this site. Due to the pandemic, many people are canning, and the lids just aren't in the stores! But on Mason Jar Merchant, I got what I needed, and it arrived quickly! Now I can make my traditional fall Applesauce.
