      Italian Herb and Dried Tomato Risotto Mix in a Jar

      3-1/2 C. arborio rice
      3/4 C. snipped dried tomatoes
      8 chicken bouillon cubes
      3 T. instant minced onion
      2 t. dried oregano
      1 t. instant minced garlic
      1 t. dried rosemary
      1 t. dried basil leaves, crushed
      1/2 t. pepper

      Makes 4 half pint jars.

      Divide ingredients equally among 4 half-pint canning jars; layering
      attractively. Add additional rice or tomatoes to fill small gaps if
      needed.

      Gift Tag Directions:

      Bring 3 cups of water to boiling in a large heavy saucepan. Add contents
      of one jar. Cook and stir till boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer
      for 20 minutes (do not lift cover).

      Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Rice should be tender
      but slightly firm. Stir in 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano
      cheese.

      Makes 3 cups.

      Decorating the Jars

      For the lid:
      Cut out a 7 – 8″ (across) circle.
      Place canning jar lid in center of fabric and put the ring around the
      lid to securely fasten the material in place.

      You might want to add cotton balls underneath the fabric to give it a
      quilt look.
