Fruit Jars

Fruit jars are so easy to make. Start by rinsing off the fruit, and patting them dry with a clean cloth. Then prepare the fruit by cutting, sectioning, and whatnot. Make sure the canning jars are clean and dry.

There are many fruit combinations you can create, or you may choose to have just one fruit. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Orange sections
  2. Watermelon, cantaloupe, and honey-dew melon balls
  3. Grapes, strawberry slices, and raspberries.
  4. Grapefruit sections, orange sections, and halved grapes.
  5. Grapes. (These can be frozen.)
  6. Blueberries and raspberries.
  7. Kiwi, halved grapes, and raspberries.

Fruit jars will last at least 3 days in the refrigerator.

These make a great component to any meal, or can be used as a snack, and are easily placed into a lunch sack.
