Hi, My name’s Larisha and I’m a canning newb.
Growing up my mom would can tomatoes, but I never paid attention on how to actually do it. I remember when I was younger, going to my great-grandmother’s house and walking into the cellar and there were shelves and shelves of canned foods. Anything from peaches and pears to pickles, homemade sauces and jellies, and so much more. Now, at 29, I’m kicking myself for not learning earlier. Does the desire to start canning mean I’m officially an adult? Either way, the fact remains that while I haven’t canned by myself yet, I do still use Ball Canning jars for many other things. I do make my own homemade sauces and I put them in the jars and keep them in the fridge. We also use them to drink out of, I make gifts with them, and my new favorite thing is to make overnight oats.
Since having our second child 7 weeks ago, I have been looking for easy recipes to make ahead of time for Andrew to grab and go so he’s still eating breakfast in the mornings since I’m unable to always make food anymore. He brought up that his mom used to make refrigerated oatmeal overnight and it was ready in the morning. This concept was new to me, so off to Pinterest I went. I was shocked to see the amazingly delicious ideas that were being shared and how easy it is to just throw the ingredients into our Ball jars and off we go. I’ve listed below 10 incredibly mouthwatering Overnight Oat ideas for you to try.
