    Thanks so much for posting these recipes. I think a case of pretty jars filled with these recipes will be the perfect "prepper" Christmas presents for my non-prepper kids and friends.

    These gifts are better than nagging, and may actually encourage them to do something in the kitchen other than putting fast food in the microwave (bleh! I never raised them that way!)

    Thought this needed a bump. I'm getting ready to make a bunch of mocha/hot chocolate/coffee mixes as gifts for our New Years Eve party...these recipes are awesome!

    Holiday bump for those last minute prep gifts.

    Love the Recipes!!!

    I'm going to use a few 1-qt mayonnaise jars (plastic) for dry ingredient storage, and for some of the coffee drinks only, I'll use up a couple empty coffee canisters.

    I dont have any jars (yet) but I can't wait to add some "mixes" to my preps. Even though I have a well-stocked pantry, sometimes I don't feel like cooking from scratch. Seems like getting out all the ingredients and measuring takes up a lot of time. This could speed me on my way. Mix together and GO!!!!

    Thank you so much for posting these.

    Thanks for the recipes. I have already tried a few, and would like to try more, but want it on paper. (lot of paper & toner!!!)
    An easy way to do it is go to file....save as...text only. Pick a location and that's it. Saves alot of cutting and pasting. Just saved the whole page in about 10 seconds. Great recipes btw.

    I posted these on another site and someone pointed out that many of these mixes can be stored in various containers such as zip lock bags, empty store bought jars like pickle/mayo/jelly, etc.

    I'm glad you are enjoying them.

    ETA:
    oops! I just went back to look thru the recipes and discovered that it was Summerthyme who suggested using zip lock bags and to be sure and label them. I want to give credit to the right site and person.

    Wow....awesome. Is there a recommended shelf life if stored in a jar...or in a zip lock bag? I would love to do several for preps.

    Lectric - What a nice thing to do! These are awesome! Thanks you so much for sharing! I will save them all to a file today and then print out. I have several food storage type recipes I'm storing in a binder. Was thinking that this year I'll make up several copies and then give them to our kids as Christmas presents.

    P.S. Could this maybe be posted on the main forum page? Seems like many would be interested! : )

    Mom - I have heard of this before. How are you sealing and processing the jars and for how long?

    Just in case it hasn't been mentioned, you can turn many of the "in a jar" type mixes into "just add water" types by including the appropriate amount of dried egg, powdered milk, powdered butter, etc and then adjusting the needed liquid in the directions. You can do the same thing with most bread machine recipes.

    I would like the sealing procedure as well. Great idea on putting in powdered eggs, milk and butter in the jar. I so need more jars though!

    I'm wondering the same thing Willow.
    Moses said to the children of Israel "pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the promised land". Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the promised land". Now Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels, and mortgaged the promised land!

    Wow, great idea. Do you have directions for canning bread in jars that you could post? I would really appreciate it!

    Reminder:

    These recipes don't have to be in jars, they can be saved in mylar bags, food saver, etc. Most of them can probably be doubled for large families or groups.

    Some of the wet ingredients like milk, eggs, etc. can be added if you have freeze dried eggs or powdered milk to use. Be sure to add a note on your instructions for the extra water when you use the mix.

    Since I posted them all those years ago, I have put a lot of them in food saver bags, then stored in buckets. I've also bought ingredients to make a lot of them that are not mixed, those ingredients are in mylar, in buckets.

    Just don't store any recipes with noodles or rice in them in bags of any sort. Noodles and rice will puncture your bags causing you to lose the seal. Jars are the go-to for storing rice and noodles long term in preparations such as this.
