I realize that serving food and drinks in mason jars is nothing new, but with football season in full swing, I think mason jars are such a great way to bring almost any type of food to a tailgating or football watching party! The beauty of using mason jars is that they are easily transportable and you can prep everything ahead of time so it’s ready to serve as soon as you get there. Put your jars in a cooler with some ice and you’re ready to roll.
