Storing Ingredients Glass Jars

Healthy Eating

From pickles to preserves, maintaining your healthy diet is no challenge when it comes to utilising glass jars. These jars are perfect for storing salads, oats, and even handmade dressings with ease. Seeking some inspiration? Why not try out one of these suggestions:

  • Pickled Vegetables - Tangy, tasty, and great for accompanying an array of dishes, pickling your own vegetables needn't be taxing. Simply choose your desired vegetable; carrots, green beans, red onions, and cucumbers are often firm favourites, prepare them accordingly, then add them to your sterilised jars. The pickling liquid is made by combining vinegar, water, salt, and sugar and bringing it to a boil until all ingredients have dissolved over a high-heat. Pour this brine over your vegetables to within 1/2" from the top, remove the air bubbles by gently banging on a firm surfaces, then seal tightly with a lid. Be sure to store your pickled vegetables in a fridge - try to fight the temptation to tuck-in for at least 48 hours, this'll allow your vegetable to soak fully in the brine.

  • Jam-Packed Salads - Perfect for those that are keen on meal-prep, as well as for those that are looking for an effective way to help store their everyday salads, it's a simple and straight-forward process when it comes to filling your jars. Simply pick your favourite ingredients, whether vegetables, lentils, or salad leaves, and layer them up. Screw or clip-down the lid, then enjoy when desired! If you fancy adding in your own dressing, then be sure to pour it over the salad, close the lid, then shake well before tucking-in.

  • Delicious Dressings - Great for drizzling over salads and other culinary creations, dressings are perfect too for storing in mason jars. What's more, they needn't be over complicated! Recipes such as a simple vinaigrette, made by mixing a desired oil with something acidic such as vinegar or lemon juice, can help liven up any dish and is designed to last up to 2 weeks if kept refrigerated and stored securely.
