I don't know about you, but I end up with so many extra mason jars around my house and I use them for so many different things, including infused water. This past year I have been trying really hard to drink more water. It's funny, I can throw down 8 ounces of wine with no problem whatsoever, but put 8 ounces of water in front of me and it's hard to choke it all down. But that was then- I started infusing water with different herbs and fruits to help make drinking it more fun! Below I'll share some of my favorite combinations!
These are some of my favorite combinations:
- Cucumber, orange, thyme
- Grapefruit, rosemary, ginger
- Blueberry, basil
- Lime, mint, raspberry, cantaloupe
All I do is cut the fruit up if necessary, I don't cut up small berries, and for herbs just throw a whole sprig down in there. After I fill the jars with the fruit or herbs I cover it with filtered water, put the lid on and refrigerate it over night (at least) before I drink it. At the beginning of the week I'll make a whole pitcher or if I want to use up left over herbs and fruit I haven't gotten to yet I'll pack a few mason jars like I did with in the photos to make many different flavors. I like the grab and go aspect of prepping 6-8 jars also! After I drink the water I'll add more water at least 2 more times before I throw the fruit and herbs out!
If you've ever reused our mason jars I'd love to see how you've used them! Just tag us #theurbancanningco
