I thought I was done with giveaways...really. Just as I threw in the towel, I came across this incredible little Cap.
My first thought was, "How do I get one?!?" which was then followed by, "My readers would LOVE these!" I immediately emailed the company and BAM! 3 for me...3 for you! They were delivered the day after I returned from a camping trip and I became inspired. There are SO many ways you can use these babies!
But first, the important things. Yes, ReCap Mason jar caps are BPA-free. (That was my first question). They fit the standard sized Mason Jar necks and wide mouth caps are in the works. The gasket can be removed to be washed and the whole cap can be thrown in the top rack of your dishwasher (although washing plastics by hand extends their life). For now, you can buy them directly from their website for $6.99 each.
With another camping trip in the works, I knew I was going to bring my share on the trip to try them out with friends (4 other families). First, was the fabulous salad dressing...
And we used them to store our oil as well!!
Then came the EUREKA moment when Erica at Northwest Edible's posted this. She is a genius. The next morning I started playing with the concept and I came up with the following idea:
- Put all of your favorite smoothie ingredients into a Mason jar.
- Screw the blender blade assembly (blade, gasket and bottom) tightly onto the Mason jar.
- Place the jar onto your blender and WHAM, blend it.
- Remove jar from the blender and then remove the blender blade assembly. Put a reCap Mason Jar Cap securely on top and you have a smoothie-to-go!

Ok, I know your mind is zipping around right now thinking about all of the ways YOU could use one of these caps. Dressings, rubs, smoothies, transporting your favorite cooking supplies on camping trips and to potlucks, pouring pancakes...and...
