We all love parfaits. Yogurt, berries, and granola. Or Ice Cream with cake and fruit. There’s something simple, yet elegant about them. Not to mention they’re fun to eat! But if you love barbecue as much as my family does, then this savory specialty will put the others to shame. Juicy pulled pork, crisp, crunchy coleslaw, sweet baked beans, creamy mashed potatoes. It’s all the flavors ...of a backyard barbecue… in a jar!
