The Perfect Gift: Homemade Bean Soup

Homemade bean soup mix in a jar is a thoughtful gift for a busy hostess or anyone on your holiday list who has little time to cook. The key to making it special is to create different layers of colorful beans in an attractive jar and to provide a seasoning mix that is packed with flavor. The recipe below makes four, one-quart mason jars.

Warm Up With Soup

Cream-style soups are a favorite for warm, soothing meals on cold winter nights. The addition of a cup or two of cooked beans can stretch canned or homemade soup into a complete, protein-rich meal in just minutes. Stir a can of drained, rinsed white beans into tomato soup or try pinto beans added to cream of celery soup. Check out these soup recipes.
