Don't Forget to Make your Soup Recipes Easy to Use

Like we just said, Use Mason Jar Labels! For the Mason Jar dry soup mixes recipes, you really need a label.

It’s a great way to call your soup something special. Like Melinda’s Mason Jar Dry Mix Potato Soup or even a more generic term like “Five Bean Mason Jar Dry Mix Soup.”

If you have a label, that sticks on the side of the mason jar, you will not need to worry about someone losing the tag or anything with the instructions.

Mason Jar Dry Soup Mix Recipe Instructions Are Important!

Last year we got a lovely jar of a dry mix soup. Was absolutely thrilled to try it. Our friend, excited to share, rattled off the directions and told us happy holidays.

Well, the gesture was delightful, but the soup mix has yet to be tasted. We’re too embarrassed to call and ask for the instructions again. And if you leave out the directions for your friends, the same will happen too.

That’s why you need to make sure that every dry delicious soup mix recipe has cooking instructions that are on the mason jar, or on a tag around the lid and you may consider emailing a copy too.

This way, the mason jar soup mix instructions are easy to find and will be enjoyed.

If you know of various ways to use the soup mix, like on the stove top in a soup pot, in the Instant Pot, Slow Cooker or Crock-pot, make sure to share those with friends as well. Any ideas and suggestions for homemade soups are always very much appreciated.

You may also love a few of our other Mason Jar Gift ideas like our Hot Chocolate Mix in a Jar and our Pancake Mix in a Jar. More festive ones that we love are the Caramel Apple Cider Sangria and the Christmas Holiday Sangria.

Don’t Forget the Importance of Soup Mix Ingredients

Mason Jar Dry Soup Mix Ingredients need to be listed. It’s how you know what you will be getting for your soup base.

When offering homemade items, we typically know our friend’s health issues (or at least what they like or don’t like to eat).

However, the need for an ingredient list is important for your mason jar dry soup mix recipe. Just so they know the ingredients.

Otherwise, if they are unclear and there is a health issue for the family or even personally, they may decide not to use the gift.

A simple list will clear up any confusion and they can enjoy your dry soup mix gift at their leisure.

You just need some pantry staples and your favorite seasonings to make your dried mix, it's wonderful. 

Tips For Making Your Mixes

  • Layering your Mason Jar Dry Soup Ingredients is possible. If it’s important to have pretty layered ingredients, then you should layer them based on the weight of the ingredients. Light powders go in first at the bottom of the jar, followed by heavier grains and then larger pieces such as noodles go towards the top of the jar.
  • Also if wanted, to avoid layers bleeding into each other, cut small round pieces of wax paper to place between the ingredients to keep from seeping through.
  • It’s not always necessary to layer your Mason Jar ingredients and some dry soup mixes don’t lean towards using this option. So please, don’t worry! Mix as needed outside of your jar and place in as you typically would.
  • Decorate with a label, tag, and instructions! It looks good that way too!
  • Use NEW. The best part about dry mixes for soups is it’s inexpensive to put together. Of course, you buy the items in bulk and start to put together as needed. Even with all the supplies and new mason jars (which all my gifts are in new jars with new lids), it’s typically less than $5 a gift. This is an amazing low price for a sincere holiday gift.
  • If you don't have mason jars, you can use a glass jar or another airtight container. 

Some Benefits of Dry Homemade Soup Mixes Recipes:

  • Soups are fun: Even if you have special dietary needs, the primary ingredients are grains. For the most part, these are easy for people to digest.
  • Quick to make: The homemade gifts are quick to put together. Especially if you gather all the ingredients and put together all the gifts in an afternoon. Many recipes just require adding hot water or boiling water and you’re ready to go.
  • Easy on the Budget: The per mason jar gift is low in cost but high flavor. Your wallet will thank you for keeping an eye on the budget.
  • You can Personalize the Gift: Personalizing the gift will allow your friends to know it came from the heart!
  • Mother Nature’s Friend: It’s environmentally friendly. Your gift is used and the jar can be used again and again for other things as needed.
