Mason Jars are meant to be used in hot water baths and cannot be used in a dry oven without a water bath. A Pressure Canner is another way they can be cooked.

Mason Jars will require 25-30 minutes cooking time and quart-sized Mason Jars will require 60 minutes, depending on what you are cooking.

It is important to seal mason jars after baking. For bread and cupcakes, you can immediately seal. For cheesecakes, allow to sit uncovered and be sure to cool prior to sealing.

It is said that you can leave your cakes, cupcakes and breads at room temperature for a few days. Mason Jars are wonderful for presenting delicious treats as gifts. You can add ribbons and a recipe card to complete your look.
