Every so often a great discovery comes along. Sir Isaac Newton discovers gravity. Einstein discovers the theory of relativity. Copernicus discovers the sun is the center of the solar system.

And . . . . { drum roll please }

Bloggers discover that parmesan cheese container lids fit on canning jars!

That’s kind of cool, dontcha think?

As long as you use a regular mouth sized canning jar (not the wide mouth variety) the flip top parmesan lids screw on nicely and give you a way to either sprinkle or pour the ingredients out.

I suppose you could just recycle a used parmesan container too if you were looking for storage for one of your homemade mixtures, but the canning jars are more durable, look a little nicer, and and with glass you don’t have to worry about any of those BPA plastic chemicals leaching out into your food stuffs. You can also get a little more size variety as you can use either quart size or pint size jars.

Now, what shall I do with this great discovery?  I’m thinking maybe a batch of my crumb coating for fish would store very nicely in this container.

How about you?  Did any ideas pop into your head for how this could be useful?

Please share with a quick comment!
