Mason Jar Pump!
A couple of weekends ago, I posted a scrumptious recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup. The photo I used showed the syrup in a mason jar with a pump. I loved this idea, and decided to make one for myself. The project is really very simple, but Luke and I had a great time doing it together. Here is the How To…
What You Need:
- Mason Jar with Canning Lid and Ring
- Plastic Bottle with a Pump (Soap Dispenser)
- Power Drill with a Hole Attachment
- Box Cutter
- Stainless Steel Washer or a second Lid (optional)
- Empty contents of pump bottle and clean.
- Measure width of bottle threads. (We used a soap dispenser that measured 7/8″)
- Measure for the center of the lid, and use the nail to mark the center.
- Drill hole in the center of the lid and smooth edges.
- Use box cutter to slice off the top of the bottle with the threading and a little shoulder to keep it from pulling through the hole.
- Check fit of all pieces. Trim pump straw (at an angle) to proper height for jar.
- Slide bottle threading through the stainless steel washer, and then through the lid hole.
- Place pump through the threading and tighten.
- Place lid on jar and lock in place with the lid ring.
- We used the stainless steel washer to give extra support for the pumping. You could also double the lid for more strength. Both of these are optional.
- All pieces are removable for easy cleaning, especially when using the pump for food items.
- DO NOT use zinc lids if you will be using the pump for food. Be sure to use the canning lids only!
