Banana bread made in a jar. Wuh??? Pretty darn crazy, huh? Why would anyone want to make banana bread in a mason jar?
Well, for a couple of reasons: I love making these beauties as gifts. I can make a bunch at a time and send them over to neighbors as a nice gesture, pass them out as party favors, give them as gifts at Christmas, as teacher gifts, or store in my pantry.
If sealed properly, they can keep for a few months in the freezer! Think food storage people!
You can decorate the jars with a circle of batting and fun fabric under the jar ring and add a pretty label. So darn cute!
