  • Jar Gift FAQ

    Here are some of the Most commonly received questions about Jar Gifts and their presentation . . .
    1. How long will the Mix last?
    2. Where can I get the Jars?
    3. Will the mix fit in the jar?
    4. What are "Toppers"?
    5. What do I use for Tags?
    1. How long will the Mix last?

    Most mixes should be used within 3-6 months, however many have reported mixes that last up to a year without any spoilage.
    To prevent meal worms in mixes containing flour, freeze your flour for 24 hours prior to creating mix with it. If a mix contains items normally refrigerated such as Parmesan cheese, then it needs to either be refrigerated or used immediately.

    2. Where can I get the Jars?

    We recommend regular canning jars which can be purchased at Wal-mart, Target, Your local Farmers Union/Feed Supply Store or Hardware store.


    3. Will the mix fit in the jar?

    Most of the Cake/Cookie/Brownie Mix recipes will fit in a Quart size jar. A Qt size jar will hold approximately 4-5 cups of "mix", so be sure to double check the size of the recipe prior to layering your ingredients. You may need to compress layers like brown sugar to fit 5 cups. A pint size jar will hold approx 2 cups of "mix".


    4. What are "Toppers"?

    Toppers are cards that fit over the tops of your bags, you can create beautiful designs, include the instructions, attach a bow, etc. Click here for more information on Toppers

      I use empty, clean instant coffe jars for mixes. Before I seall the jar, I place Christmas, Easter, Valentines, whatever printed Saran wrap over the top. I love the way it pleats and fans out. Hope this helps!

      I use plastic coffee creamer jars if I'm shipping the jar mix. They are light and free. They are also white. That makes them easy to decorate
