Mason Jars AlwaysMonday, August 02, 2010
In last week's New York Magazine, there was a review of one of the - as they put it - "faux-speakeasys" in the city right now, The Lion.
It was not good news for the restaurant - they didn't get a single star, and that doesn't happen very often. As the reviewer, Adam Platt, went on about the offerings (and he didn't mention, and maybe this is just NYC prices, but $36 for a dozen raw oysters!?!), he brought up that they serve cheesecake in a Mason jar. They bake the cheesecake right in the jar.
I like to serve banana pudding in a Mason jar:
...and I've had a Natchez Pecan cake from Cora's Cakes in a Jar, but never cheesecake in a jar...hmmm...
Noticed a lot of different Mason jar items lately:
I like these Mason jar drink dispensers
and *love* these Mason jar pendant lights;
this jar cast in porcelain to make a pendant from Pigeon Toe Ceramics
and this Kerr jar planter
...another similar jar cast in porcelain
and candle lanterns too
