I love edible gifts for the holidays. They create the perfect personal touch for gift giving during the holiday season. Mason jar cookie mixes are a popular gift idea but it’s easy to get overloaded on sweets between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s why I decided to mix things up a bit this year and put together this hearty Friendship Soup in a Jar Gift.
Your friends and loved ones will love receiving this soup in a jar recipe. It comes together is under 30 minutes and makes a huge pot full of hearty soup; perfect for those cold winter nights.
Let me share how quick and easy this soup in a jar is to put together. Here are the supplies you’ll need:
SUPPLIES FOR EACH JAR (serves 12 people)
1 wide mouth quart jar with lid
1/3 cup beef bouillon granules
1/4 cup dried minced onion
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/3 uncooked wild rice
1/3 uncooked long grain white or brown rice
1/2 cup dried green split peas
1/2 cup dried lentils
1/2 cup elbow macaroni
1 to 1 1/2 cups tri-colored rotini pasta
Card stock and color printer for tag (download here)
Ribbon, twine, or string
To assemble your Friendship Soup Mason Jar Gift, layer each ingredient in the order listed above in a 1-quart wide mouth jar. Be sure to use a jar with a tight fitting lid like that found on a canning jar or a flip-top jar. Firmly pack down between each layer. Seal the jar and then attach a gift tag with ribbon or twine and top with a bow.
I created this gift tag PDF that you can download.
To make it more durable, print the tag out on heavy paper or card stock. Once you cut out the tag, simply tie it onto the jar with ribbon or twine. These also make fabulous teacher and hostess gifts; simply add your own gift tag or sticker label that suits the occasion.
And there you have it! An amazing homemade gift made in about 10 minutes.
