I am looking for dry recipes to put in empty, small jelly and pickle jars to give as gifts. I would like mixes such as flavored coffee creamers and seasonings, nothing too expensive.

Thanks.
Brenda from GA

I just made some hot chocolate jars. I put cocoa powder and sugar mixed together, then a few chocolate chips on top then some white mini marshmellows. I cut out some Christmas coloured tissue paper in a square shape and secured it to the top of the lid with an elastic. My 3 yr old had fun helping me.

This Christmas I received a bag of Betty Crocker cookie mix inside of a potholder w/ a pocket. It was tied with a beautiful ribbon. So cute, I stole the idea!

This is an inexpensive mix that uses pint jars. My kids love this recipe (and they are picky!)

Friendship Soup Mix

Layer in jar:

1/2 c dry split peas

Ad

1/3 c dry beef boullion

1/4 c barley

1/2 c dry lentils

1/4 c dried minced onions

2 tsp italian seasoning

1/2 c long grain rice

1/2 c small pasta (put this in a plastic bag - snack size works well - then attach to jar)

Instructions to attach to jar:

Set pasta aside. In a large saucepan, brown 1 pound ground beef. Drain. Add 3 qts water, 1 qt tomato juice (or other type tomato) and soup mix (whats in the jar). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Add reserved pasta, cover and simmer for 15 - 20 min. or until tender. Yield 16 servings.

I purchase most of the ingredients at a dollar store, sav a lot, dollar tree, etc. Also watch for sales. One bag or jar of each of the ingredients makes several gift jars. I cut a square of Christmas cloth with pinking shears then put the band on over the lid. Then with a ribbon I tie on the instructions and the small bag of pasta. It is also good to just make a big pan of soup. I double the recipe and have plenty. (it is very inexpensive to feed a family too!)
