The people I gave the jars to were really pleased, started scoffing up the goodies and even though they were big jars, some had them half eaten before the day was over. :) This year I am thinking of giving jars with some type of dried soup mix in them. I did a search for soups in a jar a while back and found dozens of different soups, beans and cookies that you can put in a jar and just mix up and cook.
