  • Tips for Packing Mix Jars
  • -Use dry measuring cups and measure accurately
  • -Do not assume a pasta sauce or mayonnaise jar is a quart.
  • -Blend the flour, baking powder, soda and salt with a wire whisk
  • -Pack layers tightly in the order they are listed so all the ingredients will fit and won’t get mixed up
  • -If you want to keep two layers separate, cut a circle of wax paper and lay between.
  • -If baking cocoa is in the middle, wipe down the inside of the jar with
  • paper towel to prevent streaking.
  • -Place lid on to pack tightly the last layer.
  • -Lay fabric ring over lid and screw on the ring portion of the lid.
  • Attach ingredient list and directions with tape or punch a hole and tie
  • it on with yarn or ribbon.
