Jar Recipes to Take Along on Your Next Picnic

Summer is here and that means picnic season!

One of our favorite things to do on Sunday afternoons is to go on a hike and have a nice little lunch. Living so close to the mountains means the views are always spectacular. We love our food around here, but it’s being in nature that appeals to us the most.

However, there’s something to be said about a packed picnic lunch. Enjoying it in the wilderness is something truly special and hard top in my books.

To mix things up a bit this summer, I thought we could try some recipes in a jar. Everything in a jar seems way more fun, and I love how handy and mess-free these little guys are.
