1/3 Photos of Jambalaya Mix in a Jar
Here's an unusual gift idea. After all the cookies and cakes in a jar here's a good tasting, easy gift giving idea. I put the ingredients in a small jar with instructions tied around the lid with a festive ribbon. I always list the ingredients on the back of the instructions. Cook time is just to make the jars of mix, not the making of the actual jambalaya.
