I love glass mason jars!

It makes storing soups, homemade broths, homemade beans, etc so much easier than in ziploc bags, plus I don't have to buy as many bags! Have you ever tried to defrost broth quickly that has been stored in a ziploc baggie? Yeah, it starts getting too hot in the corners, melts the bag and then you have liquid all over your microwave! Not a problem with the glass jars, just take off the metal lids and pop it in the microwave!

Do you freeze them? I've been worried about them breaking!

I do. I've been making sure to leave at least an inch of headspace though. So far, so good!
