    I make up about 6-8 small mason jars of the spice mixture ahead of time so that when I am ready to make chili it is about 10 minutes work away (plus simmer time but I haven't figured out how to get around that yet). It is a very versatile recipe and I have made it with ground beef or ground pork and have interchanged various types of beans and corn. Our favorite version is corn with black beans.

    Recipe #382174

    A friend at work gave these to me last Christmas, and I had to have the recipe. These are so good! I can eat them right out of the jar, but they are especially good on burgers with monterrey jack cheese, with turnip greens, or peas or beans (southern style). The amount of sugar is an estimate...basically you equal it to the amount of jalapeno slices you have. Easy and delicious!

    Recipe #364662

    Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.

    Recipe #226723

    This is a miracle recipe for getting rid of those pesty ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, and put the solution on and they will be gone.

    How pretty is this? Give as a gift, share comfort food or give to someone going on a camping trip!!!! Starting the New Year with Herbs and Grains! This brings much luck and never to go hungry and always wanting to share with those in need or want. I make 12 pint jars and give for Christmas gifts. Oh So So so perrrfect for the cold weather to come......................

    Recipe #201351

    With Fall here this would make a great gift for a friend.

    Recipe #188169

    I found this in one of the magazines I subscribe to, Cooking for Two. There are several other mixes like this here at Zaar, but this one has several other ingredients and is much more and I like it. The variations are posted below.

    Recipe #184827

    This is excellent, makes a lot, and keeps well. Be sure to follow the directions. I had it go sugary on me once and I believe it was because I tried to mix the water in too fast. Number of servings is difficult to decide - it has so many uses and sometimes I put a tablespoon over ice cream and sometimes I use a cup or more for recipes calling for caramel sauce. But since Zaar makes me pick a number I picked 48.

    Recipe #176734

    I found this somewhere on the internet. It sounds so pretty! I'm putting it here for safe keeping. I haven't made this yet, but I think it would make a nice gift.

    Recipe #173332

    Limoncello, Sicily's signature liqueur, is easy to make at home. Perfect for those hot summer days... a cool explosion of the senses. This is the best Limoncello recipe I have come across, I think the secret that makes this one stand apart is the addition of the zest from one lime. Please use organic lemons and limes for this recipe. If they are not organic soak them in water for 1/2 an hour or so before zesting. Also it has been pointed out that it is best to use under-ripe fruit. Once made... there are so many uses; spiking lemonade, flavoring cocktails and splashing onto ice cream, poundcake or fresh fruit. You can substitute the peel of 15 limes for the lemon peel. Total time: 30 minutes, plus at least 4 weeks infusing time

    Saw Rachael Ray and Oprah make this on an Oprah holiday party show. It took me 7 minutes, but who's counting! To give as a gift, wrap in cellophane and tie with a bow. Add an ornament or candy cane to make it festive. Variations include Recipe #146386 and Recipe #146387.

    Recipe #146361

    Get ready for the holidays!! I know a company that sells these for $7 each but I like to include them in holiday baskets. I like to make these for the kids to have cider during the fall and winter holidays as a tradition in our very new household. They are very cute and great as a gift. Tie with a festive ribbon and attached to a bottle of apple juice along with the directions. Also these can be made inexpensively if you purchase your spices from a store selling them in bulk by weight.

    Recipe #137885

    This is the spice mix from a taco recipe that I got from Redbook's Wise Woman's Diet Cookbook. Whenever I have a recipe that calls for a package of taco seasoning mix, this is what I use. The great thing about it is that it has no MSG or preservatives. *Update* This recipe is equal to one packet of taco seasoning mix -- enough to season one pound of ground meat.

    Recipe #124269

    This is beer bread with some character. Mix it up for dinner or layer ingedients in a jar for gift-giving. From a Holiday Cooking issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

    Recipe #112703

    This makes a great gift. I have made many welcome/gift baskets for my neighbors. When I give the gift, I add a can of crushed tomatoes and a package of soup crackers.

    This version produces yummy brownies that are more chewy and less cake-like than other "in a jar" mixes. This year I made a dozen jars for gifts!

    I made this for Xmas gifts last year and everyone raved about this soup. While similar to other recipes it has additional ingredients in the mix and in the preparation. I had space left in the jars I was using so I added baggies with Goldfish crackers and directed that they be removed with the macaroni.

    Recipe #105198

    Of every recipe ever given to me, I am most grateful for this one. I am happy to share it with you. I can also quit fretting that I will loose the slip of paper it was written on 10 yrs. ago, and find it on my favourite recipe site.

    Recipe #104195

    Looking for something different to give as a "Gift in a Jar"? Why not Funnel Cake Mix? This is from "Gifts in a Jar For Kids" cookbook. Don't forget to attach a gift tag with the mixing and frying directions. (I would never allow a child to deep fry, but mixing the mix and sprinkling powdered sugar is fun!)

    Recipe #103684

    No baking necessary and always a big hit!! My niece made these last year for the holidays and I thought they were adorable. We don't like red hots, so I use mini M&M's. This also allows you to use various colors for the eyes and nose.
