    I thought we could post links and individual gifts in a jar recipes. (and related poems, gift card attachments etc)

    It's that time again for me to start thinking of making them. Brandy

    Soup mix in a jar:

    Decorate the jar with a fabric lid and/or a bow tied around the neck. Be sure to attach the cooking instructions to the jar.

    Ingredients:
    1/3 cup beef bouillon granules
    1/4 cup dehydrated onion flakes
    1/2 cup split peas
    1/2 cup ABC, small shell, or ring macaroni (any small shape pasta will do)
    1/4 cup barley
    1/2 cup lentils
    1/3 cup non-instant white rice
    tricolor spiral pasta

    Directions:
    Use a funnel to make it easy to fill the jars with the ingredients. Be sure to use a wide-mouth, 1-quart canning jar.

    Layer ingredients in the order given: bouillon, onion flakes, split peas, small shape pasta, barley, lentils, rice, and enough tricolor spiral pasta to fill jar.

    Attach tag with cooking instructions:
    In large kettle, brown 1 pound ground beef or stew beef cut into bite-size pieces in a little olive oil. Remove tricolor pasta from top of jar and reserve. Add the rest of the jar contents to the kettle with 12 cups water. Let come to a boil and simmer 45 minutes. Add tricolor pasta and simmer 15 minutes more. Serve with bread and salad.

    Don't forget those yummy chocolate spoons. Great for the gifts in a jar that are hot chocolate or coffee.

    Aren't these adorable? A bit slow loading guys, but very cute toppers for gifts in a jar if you are crafty.

    If anyone has more, please post them. I want to make some for the holidays. This is my first year making them. Any tips? Have you found that the ingredients fit nicely in the jars?

    If you do the M&M mix put the dry ingredients in first and then the MandMs.The sugar and the flour go right threw it and it looks like a big mess.
