No doubt you have a few in your kitchen as you're reading this. In fact, you may be sipping on something refreshing from one of these jars.

Why are Mason Jars called Mason Jars?

Mason jars were invented by a Philadelphia tinsmith John Landis Mason and patented in 1858. Mason's design had a very important feature that created a vacuum seal that was integral for safe canning.

His glass jars were designed with the threaded screw-top, matching lid, and a rubber ring for an airtight lid which was very different from what people were used to in those days.

The easy and reusable jars made home canning and preserving popular among American settlers and homesteaders. (source)

The different shapes and sizes of mason jars made it a great tool to preserve summer's bounty for survival when nothing would grow in the winter.

Despite the great success of these jars, Mr.Mason, however, never attained wealth from his invention.

Sadly, he sold his patent before the design took off and the Ball brothers were the first to capitalize on Mr. Mason's brilliant invention in 1884.

Often, people use the terms mason jar and ball jar interchangeable but they actually have two very distinct beginnings.

Today, mason jars are being repurposed into everything from salad containers to vases and home decor, occasionally they're still used to preserve food (ha!).

Because of the jar's current popularity, they can be found in most stores and are readily available online.

I have a vast collection of this kitchen essential ranging from small jelly jars to pint, to quart and the half-gallon sized to house bone broth.

They also have vintage and elite collection in the blue and green. So many choices for all of your needs and wants.
