This soup mix is the perfect food gift for any occasion. All of the soup mix ingredients are prettily layered in a large jar, tagged with instructions and ready to be given to its grateful recipient.
This recipe makes a pretty gift, and tastes great too! However, 18 cubes of bouillon is WAY too much. 9 or 10 is plenty. - 11 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made 12 of these for teacher gifts at Thanksgiving time. They are truly beautiful and are very much appreciated by those that receive them...one teacher's husband loved the soup so much I forwarded the recipe to her. My suggestion is to purchase ingredients in bulk at a BJ's or Sam's warehouse. I found the boullion and onion flakes to be very reasonably priced and I didn't have to make several trips to the grocery store. Also, I've found that Mason jars are "seasonal" items and you may not find them in the dead of winter...I located them at a 'grain & feed' store which stocks them year 'round. - 05 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This makes the prettiest presentation in a jar! I gave this as gifts this year. I split the lentils in half and used half green lentils and half red lentils. It was beautiful. - 10 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
