Welcome greetings to everyone. My name is Linda and I am a new moderator for this category on the board. I have been avidly searching and adding recipes for my own, and some of my friends use, for quite a while now. Please place your requests that include the name or some of the ingredients known, questions, chat and things you wish to contact me with in this area. Thank you for visiting and have a good day.
*Note If there are two recipes with the same name and exact ingredients, the first posted will stay and the 2nd one will be removed. If the name and ingredients differ, even the amounts per ingredient, then they will both stay and be numbered.
Hey, these are GREAT gift ideas! I love it. Typing in 'Gifts in a Jar' @ a search engine is how I found this site. And it is SO much more then 'Gifts in a Jar'. This is great! I plan to come here often.
I mostly came here to find out some other great Gift Ideas to put in jars, then just cookies are bars. Cause I know a few people that are diabetic, or others who get tired of only recieving sweets for the holidays. I am going to probably make the bubble bath for my hubby & son...who both love bubble baths.
Stephanie p.s. I am wondering about soups in a jar...it may be here somewhere, I haven't searched around a whole lot. Something with dried veggies, bullion, pasta, spices, etc.

Stephanie, Welcome aboard! This is a great message board. Everyone helps out finding things. Regarding the soups in a jar....I have been looking for some more to add to the list, but what I have found so far are the same ones already posted here. But I will keep looking. Check back often. And don't forget all the other sections on the board too, lots and lots of great recipes, and just plain chat too. Linda

I would love to have some soup recipes - especially ones that don't require tons of dried beans!! I found one recipe that is for potato soup that sounded wonderful. Also, could anyone post soup SEASONING mixes - where a person could just toss the seasoning into the pot with meat and veggies? Thanks! Bonnie from 'Bama

from juju New Member « Thread started on: Oct 31st, 2003, 12:11pm » <br> MemberQuestion - alternative to packing in jar?
Hi, this is my first post - hoping that my question is not too way out - I'm needing to know if packing a recipe in a sealed bag would deminish the recipe in any way? We are collecting and shipping food items to friends serving in a foreign country (we're in the US) and the jars would be heavy to send along with other gift items as far as the shipping costs. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanking you in advance, JuJu

Hi! Kind of a late reply BUT I just found this site. A little background...my church has a large fundraiser each fall and my small group runs a country store with lots of jar recipe items. This year I found bags to use instead of jars. I think the site was papermart.com. The bags that I purchased were lined with plastic and are meant for food storage. They close with a fold down tab (think old Chips Ahoy packaging). They have several different sizes and colors. Only drawback is you have to buy in packages of 100 but their prices are reasonable. (We got 300 bags for about $55.) We printed the instructions on various sizes of labels. They work GREAT on the bags. Hope this isn't too late to help you out.

You will not need to sift the flour for these recipes if you use the spoon, level and pour method of measuring.
You may want to give the flour in the canister a quick stir, lightly spoon the amount you need into a dry measuring cup. Fill the cup with a bit of excess. Take the straight edge of a knife or other utensil and level off the excess flour back into the canister. You now have the equivalent of flour which has been sifted before measuring.
I enjoy searching the internet to find untold treasures to share with others.
I’m new to the forum/website and am planning on making a cookie jar mix to give out to friends and family for the Christmas holiday. I am looking online to try and find the best deal on glass jars that I can order in bulk and save some money there too (I’m a recent college grad and recently married, so I still have a good reason to be thrifty , but I don’t know what size jars to purchase for a cookie recipe that yields two dozen cookies. The largest I can find online are 15 ounces – will that be big enough? Would it be rude to break the recipe in half so it could fit in these size jars? What size jars do you fellow jar mixers recommend and where do you buy yours from?
Thanks so much for all your help – I really appreciate it!

This was not really tips and hints about jar recipes so I moved it into the chat/questions sub category. ............ tips and hints from bakensewjoey « Thread Started on Nov 27, 2005, 2:49pm »
Hi out there! I have decided that I'm going to give gift in a jars as Christmas gifts this year. Dose anyone out there have any helpful tips on making them. That would help me out a lot. thanks Joey W ..... reply from WhisperingPass « Reply #1 on Nov 28, 2005, 2:30am »
Hi Joey W. You are definately in the right section for the gifts in a jar. Decide who you are giving to, and what they would like, soups, cookies, bars etc etc. Then search each special marked section and follow the instructions. Gifts in a jar are very simple to make and all instructions are there, even simple hints on how to pack and lable the jars for that special gift. Be sure to print off the instructions to attach to the jar so the lucky receiver of that gift knows how to make it. Have fun making your special gifts .
