Who thinks about grilling in January?
Quite simply: an entire 60% of Americans. Because, as our friends on the other side of the big pond know, even cold weather doesn't diminish the joy of grilling in the slightest. Quite the opposite – with great cuts of meat that you might never consider in summer or might find hard to get, winter grilling can open up entirely new doors for enthusiasts. And who doesn't salivate at the thought of a piece of smoky meat, even on cold winter days?

Pickling vegetables – or pickling as it's called in the USA – is a way to preserve and season vegetables. However, pickling isn't just useful for making vegetables last longer and giving them a distinct flavor – it can even help save food.
In the USA, pickling is extremely popular, and here as well, more and more people are getting a taste for it (literally!). The trend is clearly moving towards the do-it-yourself approach – much in line with a romantic country lifestyle. Just think about all the colorful, crisp vegetables that have been freshly harvested.
In the year 1858, John Landis Mason invented and patented the Mason Jars that are now well-known. The Ball Corporation, a company that early on focused successfully on manufacturing glass containers, is responsible for the term Ball Mason Jars being commonly used today. The Ball Mason Jars feature an external thread around the glass opening, to which a metal ring can be screwed. This metal ring presses a separate, disc-shaped steel lid against the edge of the glass. An integrated rubber ring on the underside of the lid ensures a hermetic seal. As nothing can enter or exit, Mason Jars are perfect for preserving food.
