Giveaway: The Mason Tap Kit

December 7, 2015

Mason Tap Kit - Food in Jars

One of the things that started my preoccupation with canning jars, lo those many years ago, was their versatility. You could store just about anything in them, they could be a drinking glass or an inexpensive travel mug, and they allowed you to forgo specialty kitchenware for a more one-size-fits-all alternative.

However, back in those early days, even I was forced to admit that there were some things that a mason jar didn’t do well. Top of that list was pour. Sure, you could shake up a salad dressing in a pint jar and take it with you to a potluck, but when it came time to dispense that vinaigrette, you knew a mess was in store. Same went for batches of simple syrup or infused olive oil.

Enter the Mason Tap. There is nothing better when it comes to dispensing and drizzling from jar to plate, cup or bowl. I have one on a small jar of fancy olive oil and another on my meyer lemon infused vinegar. My mom uses one on her dish soap and my sister keeps one on her homemade vinaigrette. It’s also a great item for avid home cocktail makers, as it puts your infused spirits within easy reach.

  1. I’d put it to use right away on a jar of elderberry syrup. There’s sickness at my house and i spill it every time I open the jar to get a teaspoonful.

  2. What a great idea and it can be used is so many different ways from cooking to cleaning ! Balsamic vinegar drizzled over some flat bread pizza…..this Mason Jar Tap kit would be perfect !

  3. My mind is so full of ideas, I would try one of each mentioned in their book, that I WILL buy myself for Christmas.

  4. Small one would be great for homemade bitters (love a dash of bitters in my sparkling water!) The larger ones would be ideal for adding a dash of elderberry shrub to smoothies (cold season y’all!) and salad dressings.

  5. If it would work for syrup, I’d love something for strawberry syrup that my family currently just lets drip down the sides onto the fridge shelf. Aarrggh.

  6. wow this is so marvelous! So many ideas, so many uses. I most definitely use this for homemade vinegar and oil and my homemade low carb coffee creamer (help me measure it more accurately!

  7. Wow! This is the product I have been waiting for! I would send my husband to lunch with his salad dressing and not worry about it getting messy 🙂

  8. That looks so effecient!! I would love to use that for my Carolina BBQ sauce I make and could put that on a buffet line. The sauce is runny enough that it would come out perfectly!

  9. I have been blending olive oil into leftover pickle brine for quick vinaigrettesand this would make pouring so much easier and neater. I’m sure i would have to hide it from my husband in case of migration from kitchen to bar.

  10. Definitely I’d use it for shrubs, I recently started making my own shrubs and I adore them especially my ginger bug shrub.

  11. Well, I think it would be more experimentation with chile infused spirits. That strawberry syrup sounds tempting though!

  12. I’m a homemade salad dressing person all the way. This would be great for that (and so I didn’t get that dreaded oil circle on my refrigerator shelf that I inevitably put something else on).

  13. I’m a big fan of using mason jars for storing cocktail ingredients — shrubs, simple syrup, and infused spirits — as well as premixing cocktails to chill and serve later. Like you said, not always the easiest to pour from though…

  14. We boil maple syrup every spring, but never have a great container to put it in to serve it (old commercial maple jugs is about the best we have). This would be awesome… Perfect for my father-in-law who is in charge of the operation!

  15. Maple syrup at this house, too! Or olive oil, or balsamic, or homemade vanilla, or… 😉 very excited that this is open to Canadian readers.
