During the summer it seems we always don’t have enough canning jars or mason jars.   We use them in so many ways besides canning.    We have made Bird Feeders, Solar Lights, and Gift Mixes from mason jars and now this Summer Berry Trifle. Sometimes we stop and pick up a case or two of different sizes or sometimes to save time.  Or we will just place an order from Amazon and have them delivered.    Either way, we can’t get enough of them.  To find the correct size of jars used in this simple trifle recipe here is our Amazon Affiliate Link for 1-pint wide mouth Mason Jars.
