A Bite of Joy | Mason Jar Recipes

If you're on Pinterest, then you know mason jar recipes are all the rage! While canning jars are easy to clean, made of heat-resistant glass, cheap, durable, and leak-proof when sealed, their large openings don't make them easy to drink out of and there isn't a way to separate the liquids from dry food. Thankfully, those problems are solved with Cuppow! The Cuppow lid and BNTO adapters make canning jars the perfect eco-friendly and beautiful solution to travel mugs and tupperware. We've pulled together some of our favorite recipes so you can put your Cuppow to work!
