Cookout season has arrived, and it’s time to light up the grill and enjoy the warm weather with family and friends. As you start to plan for your family’s next barbeque gathering, we’ve compiled some of our favorite recipes that can be prepared ahead of time in your favorite Ball® brand Jars. If you need to restock, head over to www.freshpreserving.com where you’ll be able find both classic jars and the new variations for 2017!
BBQ Pulled Pork
A staple for any summer barbeque, our BBQ Pulled Pork recipe is easy to prepare and can be made using either three Ball® Wide Mouth Quart (32 oz.) Glass Preserving Jars or six Ball® Wide Mouth Pint (16 oz.) Glass Preserving Jars. So, you can enjoy some at your next barbeque or save and serve later in the year! The roast pork practically melts apart as it simmers in the simple brown sugar BBQ sauce – is your mouth watering yet?
Simple Mason Jar Salad
Allow your side-salad to be the star of the cookout with Beth from Eat Within Your Means’ Simple Mason Jar Salad. This salad is packed with flavor, combining greens, apples, walnuts, celery and radishes with an almond butter, rice wine vinegar and maple syrup dressing. You can prepare your salad using a Ball® Wide Mouth Quart (32 oz.) Glass Preserving Jar, but be sure to remember Beth’s tip to put the wet ingredients on the bottom (the dressing) and the dry ingredients on the top (the greens)!
Caramelized Pineapple Habanero Salsa
Everyone knows that a successful cookout starts with great snacks, which is why we love showing up at summer events with tortilla chips and our Caramelized Pineapple Habanero Salsa that features a sweet & spicy flavor combination of pineapple, lime, habanero pepper, onion and cilantro. The recipe makes enough to fill four Ball® Wide Mouth Pint (16 oz.) Glass Preserving Jars, so your friends and family will be able to enjoy this treat all summer long!
Mason Jar BBQ Sundae Supper
Want to plan a cookout at a place, such as the beach, where there’s nowhere to cook? Have no fear, Amanda from Dixie Delight’s Mason Jar BBQ Sundae Supper recipe is here to help! Amanda has expertly found a way to get an entire barbeque meal into one Ball® Wide Mouth Pint (16 oz.) Glass Preserving Jar, combining baked beans, slaw, barbequed meat and pickles! The recipe makes 12 jars, so you’ll have enough food for everyone at the party.
