The traditional mason jar used for years for canning has a brand new use. Recipes in a jar, great for fun and gift giving.

Recipes in a Jar

A quart-canning jar can hold the basic dry ingredients of an endless number of recipes. Layer the basic ingredients (alternating light and dark colors) in the jar, seal it and use your computer and printer to print the recipe on a large mailing label or paper that can be trimmed. Attach your recipe to the outside of the jar with clear gift-wrap tape or a self-stick label. Dress up your recipe label with borders or colored paper.

Finish off the gift look by cutting a round piece of colorful fabric a bit wider than the lid. Center it over the round section of the jar lid, then screw the outside section of the jar lid over the cloth, so that the cloth sticks out. Complement the look by tying a ribbon around the jar in a color that matches the cloth. Share your recipes...
