Recipes in a jar

I found these gift ideas via Red Velvet Art. I think they are really great and I will probably end up making a few of them for my roommate and sister, and probably one for fun. They come with tags that have the recipes on them too.

Here are the ones I would like to make:

Curried Lentil Soup

Blue Cornbread with Pineapple

Spiced Hot Cocoa

I like jarred things so this is right up my alley.
