I saw an article in the newspaper food section today discussing how chic it is to use canning jars to serve food, drinks, etc. OK, stop laughing. Anyway, the best part was the author noting that canning jars reflect days gone by when things were easier and simpler.
Right. Nothing is simpler and easier than standing in an un-air conditioned kitchen over a boiling water canner, shoving food into jars that you had to prepare without the aid of modern appliances. Sure, I love my Foley Food Mill, but it isn't easier than a food processor.
Hipsters ruin everything.
