OK, OK — we are certifiably crazy about food in jars. We've talked about salad in jars, cobbler in jars, and even gift recipes in jars. Now here's one more: a complete BBQ lunch in a jar!
And seriously, this is a fabulous idea for a picnic. You load up a jar in layers: First baked beans, then coleslaw, and then pulled barbecued meat on top. You could bring a stack of cornbread along, or some homemade bread. Supplement with a jar of cold homemade lemonade and you have a great little picnic — all in jars!
