    riffraff's Note:

    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.

      Great recipe! I would use canned or dehydrated shrimp and substitute smoked summer sausage to make this even more "disaster" friendly. Don't forget the can opener!

      This is awesome. The only thing different I did was add dried bell pepper flakes to the mix and omitted the fresh ones.

      I haven't tried this yet, (Ijust found it today), but it looks like it will be good! I love the jar idea, I put alot of mixes in jars, they keep better and look great in a kitchen for us "homestyle" cooks! I have only given 4 stars because I haven't made it yet, then I'll review again.
