Way back in 1859, John Landis Mason created the first mason jars, not for home-brewed beers or even arts and crafts, but to preserve perishables long before every kitchen had a refrigerator. Once upon a time, mason jars meant survival, but in the 21st century, they mean tasty beverages at the slickest bars in Brooklyn, Silver Lake, and everywhere in between.

Mason jars also mean clever solutions to practical problems, problems like, "Where do I keep all these sea shells?" or "What the hell am I going to do with all these mason jars?" This list of mason jar ideas will provide the answers you seek, so vote up your favorite things to put in mason jars and add even more unique ways to use mason jars if you are in the know.
