Planning a picnic?  Going camping?  Want to take a road trip without spending a ton on food?  Try some of these 25 easy and awesome mason jar recipes for your next outing!

Every summer I have this pipe dream that I’m going to take a road trip.  I absolutely love road trips!  In fact the only thing I didn’t love about my two day excursion from Virginia to Michigan was the fact that my car didn’t have cruise control.  Other than that I love riding with the windows down, the radio up, and a bag of snacks in the passenger seat.

I tried pretty hard not to jump on the mason jar band wagon when they became popular last year for things other than canning.  I failed and the more I get into this blogging thing the more I want to experiment with different mason jar recipes.  So, what better way to kick off summer than with a round up of 25 awesome, easy, and fun mason jar recipes perfect for picnics, camping, and road trips?  I found everything from breakfast to pasta to salads to snacks to drinks to dessert and they all sounded pretty dang perfect for summer fun to me!
