Serious cooks tend to turn up their noses at the thought of commercially packaged mixes, fearing the boxes to be chock-full of chemical additives, but there's no doubt that using them saves time. Parks' The Mason Jar Soup-to-Nuts Cookbook demonstrates that a cook can prepare personalized combinations of ingredients at home and thus enjoy the mixes' advantages without their drawbacks. She produces breakfast bread mixes, cookies, cakes, soups, stews, and a few beverage bases. Each mix fits in a quart or pint canning jar. For those who, a la Martha Stewart, like to create culinary gifts, Parks demonstrates how some fabric, ribbon, and cunningly penned instructions to the recipient enhance the jar. This blend of cookery and crafts will appeal to a cross section of readers. Mark Knoblauch

There are a number of books on the market with this idea and I have several others of these books. The Mason Jar Soup-To-Nuts Cookbook is by far my favorite.
Three pages devoted to each recipe, one for the labeling and each page can be easily copied to pass along. (One such booklet that I own is printed in red so that nothing can be copied. What a pain to have to write out the directions over and over--ugh!).
The recipes are tasty,hearty and delicious. Even my husband has been very impressed with the quality of the soup recipes. Three that we have made: Homemade Chicken Noodle, Very Veggie Pasta Soup, and a great Tortellini Soup that is really a whole meal.
Be prepared to have to buy spices and bouillon. It is very well worth it however and you will not believe the wonderful gourmet flavor achieved. Thyme is in just about every recipe, so if you can only afford one spice, that's the one.
I have made over 18 jars of the soups from this book, some for gifts but most for my own pantry. I love how prepared I feel for emergencies, last minute gifts or surprise dinner guests. I made four jars for a new mother and she was thrilled, saying it was her favorite present!
Hats off to the authors, you've saved me money, time and anxiety. Well done!
Tried another recipe Barley Rice Stew again ingredients did not fit in 1-pint wide-mouth canning jar
I'm done with this book and would not recommend it to anyone.
This book has been a dissapointment, but still worth buying. If you have the creativity and culinary expertise to modify the recipies you'll do fine, but TEST THEM FIRST.
While the recipies in this book will look cute and be a thoughtful gift, save yourself a lot of embarassment by testing them completely in your own kitchen, with your own family before giving them as gifts. If you are choosing between THIS book and the Dinner Is In The Jar book, it's a toss up -- you'd have to decide what your purpose is. If it's gift giving, try this one. If you want to eat it yourself and use it as quickly preparable meals, or emergency supplies, pick Dinner Is In The Jar.
