Parmesan Cheese Lid On Ball Jar

This ingenious homemade herb shaker is made by screwing the lid of a parmesan cheese container onto a canning jar.

The plastic shaker tops from Parmesan cheese containers screw perfectly onto regular-sized canning jars.

This setup works great for homemade dried herb and spice blends. If the holes are too big for your dried herbs, line the lid with a piece of clean window screen.
