I rated this a 3 not only because I tweaked it (alot), but also because I believe that a Gift in A Jar should be all inclusive, and, for me, instructing the recipient to add his/own chopped Onion warranted a "demerit". My tweaks were: (1) I added 1/4 teaspoon dried celery leaves to the seasoning packet, (2) I omitted the Rice (as suggested by another reviewer) all-together and increased the Barley to 3/4 cups; (3) I included (a) 1/4 cup Deyhydrated Onion AND (b) 1/4 cup Dehydrated Carrots; (4) I used 1/4 cup Green Split Peas and 1/4 cup Yellow Split Peas (rather than just green); and (5) I added 6 tsp. Chicken Bouillon granules (the eqivalent of 6 Chicken Bouillon Cubes). I layered the ingredients as follows (from bottom to top): Barley, Yellow Split Peas, Onions, Carrots, Green Split Peas, Bouillon granules, Brown Lentils. I did separate the seasoning in a packet, but I honestly don't see how including it in the general presentation would detract from it.
