Recipes In a Jar

Making recipes in a jar is so quick and easy! I've given these out for Christmas in gift baskets, and people always love to get them.



These jar gifts are also great gifts for teachers, the mailman, co-workers, or anyone else that you want to give a little something inexpensive to. Set up an assembly line, and in no time at all you'll have gifts for a lot of people!
