What's your favourite "in a jar" recipe. I want to give some out at Christmas to save on some $$$$ this year, since I am a poor masters student in university. :S Thanks!!!!

A dry mix for instant Chai tea that you can keep on hand for those frequent Chai tea emergencies. It's also a popular gift.

Hello Raquel, love your post! Funny! This would be good n cheap. Buy a bunch of pint size mason jars and a couple yards of pretty fabric. Your love for your friends will show through the jars:)

A lovely mix that can be placed in a jar to give as a gift. A great change from cookies in a jar. Just copy the recipe onto a card and attach it to your jar to give as a gift.

Wow, this is different from anything I have seen. What would I use this with? I could include suggestions on an index card.

I gave out apple butter one year. It was well received. I love love love apple butter. Homemade is so much better. We like it on English Muffins, toast, bagels, by the spoon etc. LOL

These are the BEST.

I made these as a gift one year also. It was suggested to have a more "festive" cookie name. I think they were something like Cranberry Snowflakes or something.

Believe it or not, I put this in canning jars one year, packed with hot pads in a loaf pan. I printed the directions on a card. It was a big hit, as most people don't make any kind of bread and have never had this before. It's great if you add cheddar and jalapenos to the batter too! :)

oooh, very interesting. Thank you!
