Repurposing Jars

Introduction: Repurposing Jars

When we buy food, we almost always end up aquiring something with a jar (or even a container) that, when empty, can be easily reused to preserve other food or to store inedible items.

This is a very intuitive instructable, but I hope it will inspire you to reuse something that you are probably throwing away and reduce food waste.
