        I can’t get to the apple cinnamon pancake recipe when I click on it.


        • Kelli says

          Hi Denece, I just checked the link and it is working fine. Here’s the recipe though. To put in quart jar:
          3 c all-purpose flour
          1/2 c chopped dried apples
          3 tbsp sugar
          2 tbsp baking powder
          4 1/2 tsp cinnamon
          1 1/4 tsp salt

            i see the ingredients, but not the recipes for them all. usually when you send a gift like this thjere is some confusion as to how to use it. generally youd tie on a tag with the recipe, including baking times, how-to, etc…

          • Katie says

            Hello! As the author of the post with the apple cinnamon pancakes, I can tell you that if you are able to open the link and you scroll down, I had scanned in the recipe tags to be tied onto the mason jars and linked them to the post. If you are unable to open the link, the recipes can be found in the Soup to Nuts Mason Jar Cookbook by Lonnette Parks. She seems to have many variations on the book, also including cookies recipes.

    I am new to this and would like to make soups in a jar for Christmas gifts. I can not find anywhere how to make the recipe cards like what stock paper to use, how to print them from these recipes for in the jar gifts. Can anyone tell me where to go to find this kind of information? I want my gifts to look really good so I don’t want to haphazardly make the cards. Thanks in advance for all your help.
