directions

  • Use a quart jar that has a wide mouth, but if you can't find one any quart jar will work.
  • Place each type of bean in jar in the order listed above.
  • Top with seasoning bag, gently flattened so it can be seen from all sides.
  • Place lid, decorate jar and attach recipe.
  • Put an expiration date: one year from time of assembly.
  • DIRECTIONS TO MAKE RAINBOW BEAN SOUP:

  • Remove seasoning packet from the jar and set to the side. Rinse beans and place beans in large microwave-safe dish. Cover with water 1" to 2" over top of beans. Cover dish loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 15 minutes, rotating after 7 minutes. Drain and rinse beans very well; place in a large pot. Add 8 cups water, one 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes and seasonings from packet. Cover, bring to boil. Lower heat, cover pan and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until beans are tender. Stir occasionally.

    I made 2 of these for Xmas gifts this year. So nice and colorful. Will take a pic when I get some Xmas fabric for the top. I will give the soup review when it is made. I hope my Mum makes it while I am visiting her this year. Pic to come

    I made two jars of this soup to give away as Christmas gifts this year. The finished product was so pretty, like something you would find at a craft market. My jars weren't quite big enough so I would recommend measuring the jar first so you won't realize at the last minute that all of the ingredients won't fit. Thanks for such a creative idea!

    We received this as a gift and I'm glad to see it here, because it's a delicious soup. Along with the beans and the soup mix we received a 14 oz can of tomatoes that we added undrained. I don't like canned hams or spam, so I added approx 1 c of some deli ham from our fridge. The beans took about 2 hours to become tender while cooking.

    I first got this for a gift and the next year I made it for others. It was so easy and tasted great. My husband likes it with meat in it (I usually use kielbasa) but it really doesn't need it!
