Are you ready? Are you planning to make it a handmade holiday?
Over the weekend, my daughter and I tried our hand at making cookie mixes in canning jars. You know the ones. The beautifully layered, ribbon and fabric-topped homey goodies that make for great hostess gifts.
But there was a problem.
|Yes, I realize the picture is upside down.|
Or common sense.
They all wanted us to take 6 cups of ingredients and place them (neatly, of course!) in a one quart jar. Ok, folks. Remember elementary school, when we all learned volume? How many cups are in a quart? That's right.
Six cups of ingredients in a four cup container.
And the funniest part? We actually tried it. (Hey, we figured these were tested ahead of time. Silly us!) But after some digging and persisting, we found a few recipes that did work perfectly, and we can't wait to pick out just the right embellishments to make turn the jars into stunning gifts.
