    Hey Eric –
    You should try some 10 year old single malt Irish whiskey in that glass…..

    Hi Eric,

    I recycle salsa, jelly, and jam jars to hold utensils for family potlucks or for cool drinks outside–less to worry about if a recycled glass break versus an expensive glass! I especially like the jars that resemble mason jars or those with interesting designs. Also, personal size juice jars make great vases for flowers! Thanks for all the great tips!

    Hi Eric,
    Another great use for glass jars…
    I freeze single portions of homemade soup/chili etc. (make sure you leave enough head space for expansion) and bring them to work for my lunch. Take the top off, heat it up and eat it straight out of the jar!
    This way you’re not eating hot food out of plastic (which leaches harmful chemicals into your food!!! yuck) and your recycling-eating healthier- and using less plastic packaging! Win win, right?
    Keep em’ coming, great job!
    Kris

    Love hearing other ideas for glass recycling. I keep and reuse glass jars for spices. I buy fresh spices from the farmers market and from a Amish community. They come in plastic baggies. The glass jars keep everything fresh and I use the stickers off the baggies to identify what is what. Thanks for all of your videos. I enjoy them so much!!!
