  • Soups in a Jar
    when I first found this web site my request was for recipes in a jar, and thanks to all of you I have purchased more "ink and paper" I was given so many different seach items for the BB Search and when I have a few moments I am searching again for more jar recipes, I was wanting to give as gifts where I work, If anyone has a special soup/stew recipe I would appreciate it. Also, I have had the cookie recipes from a jar and they have been great, but curious as to how tasty soup in a jar would be.
    again thanks

    There's no salt in this mix, so that can be a good thing for some. I always save (in the freezer) the water I drain off from making mashed potatoes and use it in this, and I do like College Inn broth, but you can adapt to whatever you like.

    2 1/2 c green split peas
    2 1/2 c lentils
    2 1/2 c pearl barley
    2 c alphabet macaroni or rice
    1 c dried onion flakes
    1/2 c celery flakes
    1/2 c parsley flakes
    1 1/2 t thyme (optional)
    1 1/2 t white pepper (optional)

    Mix all ingredients together; store in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Stir before using. Makes 10 c of mix. Divide mix into gift jars. (Use 3 wide mouth quart size)

    Instructions for Soup:

    Combine 1 c of soup mix with 4 c of water, or seasoned stock, in large pan. Add 1 c of cooked chopped meat, if desired. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover pan. Simmer gently for 45-60 minutes, or until peas are tender. Add 1/2 t (or to taste) salt, if desired.

    Minestrone Variation:

    Combine 1 c of soup mix with a 16-oz can of stewed tomatoes, 2-3 c water or stock, 1 chopped carrot, 1-2 chopped potatoes, and 1/2 t basil. (Optional: 1 clove minced garlic). Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover pan. Simmer 45-60 minutes, or until peas are tender. Add 1/2 t or to taste) salt, if desired.
