Boni Posted August 14, 2008 Report Share Posted August 14, 2008 This forum has cobwebs on it. What's up? Don't we have time to cook anymore? Winter is coming fast and we all need to stock up so our crock pots will be filled during those cold months ahead. A group of ladies came to my house last weekend and we made gifts in a jar. We used the ideas from the Gooseberry Patch book Gifts for Giving. If you've never done this before, you've got to try it. We used ingredients purchased in bulk at the local supermarket. We each contributed canning jars that were sitting in our pantries not being used. We made the prettiest jars with layers of a dozen different beans, pasta, and grains--just like sand art. We kept the seasonings separate in zip loc bags. Topped them with rings and lids. Then the best part of all--we cut fabric circles and ribbons to make them beautiful. Guess where the fabric came from! Yup--MY STASH. We made soup mixes, cookie mixes, hot cocoa, toffee coffee, and seasoned oyster crackers. Can't wait for those crisp fall days to try one of them.
