She Put Some Fruit In These Old Jars. Minutes Later?? I Am Never Baking Again!

The great thing about canning jars  is that they are built to withstand very high temperatures. Most people use them for pickling vegetables or making jam but did you know they can also be baked in the oven.

First take two-and-one-half cups of fresh seasonal fruit. Put those into four half-pint canning jars. Combine one half-cup of flour, one half-cup of sugar and one half-teaspoon salt.

Next whisk it together with a fork and pour it on the fruit, and then top with butter. When the jars are full, put them on a square baking dish. Fill the dish with dried beans to keep the jars from sliding around.

Place in the oven and bake at 350 for one hour. After baking, let the jars cool completely. I like to put a little whipped cream on top and, if you like, you can keep them in the fridge for up to a week. They make a great gift, and they are awesome for a picnic.

The final result looks totally yummy.
