Ice Cream in a Jam Jar

by autumn on August 19, 2010

For the past few months, everyone and their mother on the internet has been making OIAJ (Oats in a Jar). See below:

“OIAJ: Oatmeal in a Peanut Butter Jar,” Serious Eats

OIAJ Tutorial,” Carrots n’ Cake

I get it. I can relate to the satisfaction of getting a peanut butter jar completely clean–you’re talking to the lady who likes the surface of the hummus to be eaten down to a smooth, even layer before she puts it back in the fridge. Kind of weird, but it could be worse.

Oats (certified gluten-free!) are my staple cool-weather breakfast. I haven’t bought them in months. However, in the spirit of Oats in a Jar, today I used some homemade vanilla ice cream to get the last of Kate’s blackberry vanilla jam out a its jar. In the name of thrift and delicious jam, I would recommend you do the same.
