    rsarahl's Note:

    This is a nice homemade gift mix. Makes a great afternoon project for kids; mixing the dry ingredients and packing the jars, then making and decorating the gift tags. Enlist the assistance of your favorite word processing software and set up the ingredient list and instructions on plain paper, getting about 3 or 4 sets on one sheet depending on the font and typeface size you select. Print and cut out the tags. This leaves the back of the tags free to be decorated before they're tied onto the jars. Alternatively, cut out a piece of pretty paper that is slightly smaller than your tag, line it up with the top of your tag, centered and punch a hole through both pieces of paper before tying the tag on... it's an easy way to pretty up the tag if you don't have little artists willing to decorate the plain paper tags! Recipe is easily doubled, tripled, quadrupled... adjust servings to fit your gift list! Cooking time is for the finished product. No cooking is involved in making the mix.
