Wow, Laura. You sure do talk about Stir-and-Pour Bread a lot.
Does this surprise you? Did I or did I not warn you that the Stir-and-Pour Bread would change your life? I did. There’s no way I will ever go back to the “old way” of making bread when this recipe makes a bread just as good with such a tiny amount of effort. I can’t stop talking about it!!!!!
We could talk about the weather if you want. Brr. It’s cold. I could really go for some warm homemade bread.
Well, I tried.
So guess what? All of the dry ingredients for Stir-and-Pour Bread fit in a one-quart jar! This means that you can fill jars with bread mix, tie them up with pretty ribbons, and give the gift that will change people’s lives!
I mean, Jesus is really what changes people’s lives. But Jesus is the Bread of Life, so there is a very deep connection here that we should discuss at length. Perhaps while the bread is in the oven baking???
This gift idea costs about $1.00 per jar. For a more elaborate gift that is still on the frugal side, how about gifting this jar of bread mix with a new ceramic bread dish? Who wouldn’t love that?? You could include a jar of homemade jelly. Maybe a jug of honey. A stick of butter? Well, that might be taking things too far.
Stir-and-Pour Bread Mix in a Jar
- 4 cups flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat)
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 Tablespoons sucanat or sugar
- Stir ingredients and funnel into a quart-sized jar.
- Add gift tag with instructions to add water and bake!
I created a printable with instructions on how to stir together the bread and bake it. Print them, cut them, and tie them onto your gift jar!
Check out the other recent low cost gift ideas I shared earlier this week. Tis the season to turn food into gifts, right? Right.
