The kids and I made this one year for people for Christmas, and got lots of complements on how pretty the jars looked. Rachel got the one that looked slightly less pretty because it fell over while we were assembling it.
Layer the following this order in a 1 pint jar (or double the quantities and layer in a 1 quart jar instead). Make sure you tamp down each layer and try to keep excess spice dust from getting on the glass, in order to keep the layers looking pretty.
(continued on next page) Attach the following instructions to the jar when you give this as a gift, or make it yourself. These instructions are for the 1 pint jar so make sure to double these quantities if you are using a 1 quart jar.
Pour contents of jar into 6-quart pot. Add above listed ingredients. Fill remainder of the pot with water. Bring to boil. Let simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Becky Rant: Well, my computer was running out of battery so Madame Gooey No Nap and IJ had to relocate downstairs after page 65, so I could plug in the computer. So now we’re in the playroom. Where she is growling and goo-ing up all the things down here. Gymnast Big Sister is still passed out upstairs.
