I LOVE to give "gifts in a jar" during the holidays... here's one for your enjoyment...  PLUS click for great website with tons more Soups in a Jar Recipes

Today's recipe... Remember... Disclaimer: Some folks don't always follow updated USDA canning methods, they may live in another country where the standards are not the same, they may use heirloom methods passed down through the generations, they may choose other canning methods not recommended. Use this recipe at your own discretion, or adapt it to your own method. I am sharing these recipes EXACTLY as they were sent to me and take NO responsibility for them.
