Free Gifts In A Jar Recipes, Tags & Tips

[Updated For 2010 Holiday Season] Gifts in a jar typically include all the ingredients to make or bake something that are stored in jars (like mason jars or jam jars, etc.) and presented as gifts.
Gift Mixes In A Jar Can Be Quite Visually Appealing
Gift Mixes In A Jar Can Be Quite Visually Appealing
They can be cookie mixes, cake mixes, bath & beauty ingredients (like bath salts and foot soaks), hearty soup mixes, bread, buns, pastry ingredients, seasoning mixes, hot beverage recipes (like Homemade Instant Cappuccino Mixes), any recipe that will keep well in a jar pretty much works.Sometimes the ingredients are all layered in the jar and this can look quite appealing if there’s some contrast between the colors, other times the recipe ingredients are fully mixed together before being placed in the jar.
After filling the jars, you can decorate the lids to look pretty and more festive. Make sure to include the list of ingredients and recipe directions for cooking or baking the mix or how to use the gift.
Here’s a collection of resources that share hundreds of free recipes for these lovely homemade gifts. I also added a few treats at the bottom for how to decorate the jar lids as well as some freebie printables (labels & tags for gifts  in a jar)   Visit:

Baby, It's Cold Outside...A hearty stew will cure what ails you......... 
 This is the perfect after shopping on a cold day meal.
Braised Beef Vegetable Stew (Turkey)

1 ½ lbs boneless beef chuck (diced into one-inch cubes)
4-5 red potatoes cut in quarters
1 large onion (or 2 medium onions)
2 large garlic cloves
1 can diced tomatoes, include liquid
1 1/2 cans beef broth (approx. 20 oz.)
2 cups winter squash peeled, diced
1 cup baby cauliflower chopped
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano

In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp of the vegetable oil over high heat. Sear beef 10 minutes, turning after 2 minutes, until all sides are brown. Remove from heat and set aside. (If you use cooked turkey skip this step)
In a large stockpot, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium high heat. Sauté onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano until onions are tender. Add tomatoes, broth and beef. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 90 minutes, then add cauliflower and simmer for another 20 minutes. Add squash and potatoes, and simmer another 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Serve with your favorite crusty bread or sprinkle cheese over the top. Freeze or refrigerate remaining portions within 2 hours.

 Note:  I haven't tried this yet; but I would use up some left over turkey in this recipie.  Use turkey instead of beef and chicken broth instead of beef broth. That sounds great to me.  I'm going to give it a try!

 Thanks, Vocalpoint for this recipie.
