Here’s a pop quiz, hot shot. It’s the morning of Tuesday, July 5th. You have work in an hour. You need a smoothie to take care of the results of yesteday’s celebration and your blender’s 56 oz jar still has the remains of last night’s margaritas. What do you do? What do you do?
Ah, such are the problems of the affluent western world. Fortunately, there’s an answer. I learned over the weekend that the KitchenAid brand blender (and apparently most others) are designed so that the thread fits a standard Ball mason jar. And who doesn’t have a TON of these around the house?
I was going to take some pictures to demonstrate each step in the process (in case the margaritas are still working) but the folks over at Simply Recipes already did the work for me (and provided the suggestion for whipped cream as well.)
And just in time to ease your holiday party preparations. Good hunting!
Thanks to Scott Callan and Anna Forsman for the heads up on this. If you’ve used this tip (or even if you haven’t) and you’re in Ithaca, stop by The History Center to say thanks!
