Getting your food storage pantry stocked with delicious, easy to prepare foods will make busy nights much easier. Just heat and eat is the key here. With all the easy to prepare foods you can make, it’s a great way to add healthy, quick prepared foods to your pantry. Meals, drinks, and desserts in jars are also a great way to get prepared for camping, hiking, or other outings without spending a lot of money.

This is a great way to take dry foods bought in bulk and create something delicious for later use. What you are doing essentially, is creating your own groceries! Skip the boxed Hamburger Helper, or bagged cookie mix and go for something more healthy where YOU control the ingredients!

How about gifts in a jar ideas for a neighbor, teacher, or friend? Healthy cookie mixes or drink mixes are always welcomed! How about for that new mom or bride? Send along a meal in a jar with a new kitchen towel and wooden spoon for a perfect present!

Most of the jars should be vacuumed sealed, to ensure more air is taken out and storage shelf life is longer. If you don’t have a vacuum sealer, you can get one here from my affiliate partner. OR, you can seal them in the jar and rotate within 2-3 months. You can also store them in ziplock baggies, but be sure to get as much air out of the bag and use within 2 months.
