My friends delight in making jokes about my love for putting food in
mason jars ~ seriously, is it not just more fun? They're so cute, and I think it's
such a clever idea for picnics, potlucks and BBQs to open your cooler and pull
out little individual servings! It couldn't be easier, and my favorite words when
I'm entertaining - they can be made ahead of time!
12 - 8 ounce mason jars
1.5 lb. carton of strawberries, cut in pieces
1/2 cup sugar (or less)
Sprinkle sugar over strawberries and let sit 20 minutes, or until juices form.
Pound Cake cut in cubes
I use 6 large butter pound cakes from Costco (12 to a pkg.)
Heavy Whipping Cream - 1 pint
3 tablespoons sugar
Whip cream until stiff gradually adding sugar while whipping.
Layer ingredients in mason jars.
Pound Cake, Strawberries & Cream and repeat.
Place lids on jars and refrigerate.
Can be made 3 - 24 hours prior to serving.
Yield: 12 servings
Tell me I'm not alone in my enthusiasm for mason jars. :)
