Country Soup in a Jar

Great gift idea!


  • 1/2 cup barley
  • 1/2 cup dried split peas
  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup dry lentils
  • Ad
  • 2 Tbsp. dried minced onion
  • 2 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 cup uncooked alphabet pasta
  • 1 cup uncooked twist macaroni


In a wide mouth 1 quart jar, layer the barley, peas, rice, and lentils. Then layer around the edges the onion, parsley, salt, lemon pepper, bouillon, and the alphabet pasta. Fill the rest of the jar with the twist macaroni.

Seal and attach a gift card. The gift card should read:
Add contents of jar to 3 quarts of water, 2 stalks chopped celery, 2 sliced carrots, 1 cup shredded cabbage (optional), and 2 cups diced tomatoes. Cook over medium-low heat, cover and simmer about 1 hour, or until vegetables are tender.
