Ebooks for Home Cooks

jar gift ebookMixes in a Jar, commonly referred to as Gifts in a Jar, are canning/Mason jars that contain all the dry ingredients to prepare a recipe. The recipient adds things like butter, eggs, and whatever perishable ingredients are needed. They're a convenient way to give a gift of ready to make cookies, cakes, muffins or other homemade treats. Soup and beverage mixes in a jar are also quite popular.

Gifts in a Jar are especially popular during the Christmas holiday season. They make perfect hostess gifts. They're wonderful gifts for teachers, neighbors and co-workers. They're also good to keep on hand for those last minute gifts.

You can find mixes in a jar in many gift shops, selling from about $8 to as much as $20 a jar, but they are really very easy and inexpensive to make yourself.

This collection of Gift in a Jar favorites features a varied selection of simple to prepare recipes. Since cookies are the perennial favorite homemade treat, many of the recipes are for cookie mixes. There's also brownie mix, muffin mixes, cornbread mix, Christmas soup mix, hot chocolate mixes, and dog biscuit mix.

To enhance your jar gifts, each recipe includes it's own printable tag with cooking or baking directions already added. Just print the tags and attach them to the jars.... No more typing or writing out the directions! Since this is an ebook, there's no limit to the number of tags you can print. Print the tags again and again, as often as you need them.

Each recipe is on a separate page. A page with a printable recipe tag follows each recipe. Online jar mixes are included, but with different, brand new recipe cards. Since some of the mixes, like hot chocolate mix, for example, are not used all at one time, printable jar labels are also included for those mixes.

The colorful, double fold cards and labels feature country style images on the outside and easy to follow recipe directions inside. All the beautiful country clip art and graphics are from "Original Country Clipart by Lisa". You won't find jar recipe tags like these anywhere else!
