I had an “Ah-Ha!” moment today as I was making lunch. I wanted to grind up some chicken meat for a sandwich, but it’s always such a chore to clean out the blender after doing a little blending job. I don’t like digging the tiny bit out of the bottom. Then I noticed that the screw-on blender base looked very similar in size to the top of a canning jar. I wondered….
I grabbed an empty canning jar and set the blade unit on the mouth. It fit perfectly. Then I tried the base piece of the blender (the part that screws into the machine), and it screwed on smoothly. Perfect!
So I was in business. First I ground up that chicken meat in a quart size jar. That’s the jar I grabbed in the beginning so I just went with it.
Then I moved on to nuts in a pint size jar. I like to store ground nuts in the freezer, and a pint size jar is just perfect. Now I can chop them up and stick them in the freezer, all in one container.
