Christmas Confetti Bean Soup in a Jar

By Nancymccarroll
What is on your "I Really WANT to Do" list for the holidays?
Christmas Confetti Bean Soup in a JarReally, is there such a thing as a list of Things You Must Do For the Holidays?  Kinda takes the fun out of it.
Besides listening to more seasonal music, I really wanted to make "soup mixes in a jar" for gifts.  It was unbelievable how many sites came up on a Google search for just this topic.
Here is the one site I settled on at this link because it was COLORFUL, EASY, and HAD LABELS.
Needed: 12 wide-mouth pint (2-cup) canning jars with lid and rings 14 pounds assorted dried peas, beans and lentils (at least 8 different varieties):
  •  pink beans 
  •  black beans 
  •  baby lima beans
  •  lentils
  •  red lentils 
  •  black-eyed peas 
  •  red kidney beans 
  •  pinto beans 
  •  split peas 
  •  great northern beans 
  •  small red beans 
  •  white beans 
  • 12 Italian-flavor or beef flavor bouillon cubes 
  • 12 bay leaves
Just put half cup of each bean layered in the jar topped with a bouillon cube and bay leaf and tie on a the printed label.  Like this!

I like soup, and almost any kind of flavor.  How about you?

Linking to A Sheltering Tree ... because soup is something that can nourish a body and soul!
