Here is a great new product I recently discovered.
They are called "reCAP Mason Jars".
It's a wonderful invention that I didn't realize how much I'd use until we had them. I got two, they are made in two different sizes, one for the standard size opening of a jar and one for the wide mouth opening.

We are experimenting with making our own salad dressings in a jar. It's a great way to just put our ingredients in and then screw on a standard lid and ring and shake it up. Nothing wrong there, but then when you unscrew that ring and pop off the lid, it's a mess to pour. This eliminates that.
Here is a batch of mason jar dressing we made up for dinner.
It's our "Farmhouse Vinaigrette".

First I put in the olive oil, then some red wine vinegar, and then a batch of seasonings and screwed on the reCAP lid.

Snap the flip top down (I kept my thumb on it just to be safe) and then I shook it up for about 30 seconds. Voila! Homemade dressing.
Then came the fun part, pouring it out.
I flipped up the top and poured the dressing onto the salad. It came out smoothly and cleanly. Best of all? When I was done, I snapped the flip top down and put it in the fridge for storage. No mess, no fuss, no leaks. It's ready for the next salad and all I'll have to do is shake it up and pour it out.
These jar lids are made of BPA-free, recyclable plastic and replicate the vintage look of the American zinc cap. They are top rack dishwasher safe, though they recommend hand washing. Oh, and they can even turn your favorite canning jar into a beverage container (i.e. an adult sippy cup!).
Please visit the reCAP website HERE for more information, or, they have an Amazon storefront that you can visit at: reCAP Amazon Storefront.
This is my own independent review, not done in exchange for product. It's just something I found that is very useful and thought I'd share.
