Country Five Bean Soup Mix in a Jar

I made a few of these Country Five bean soup mixes in a jar and gave them out as gifts. Of course, before I did that I made a ‘test batch’ for ourselves. The soup is simple and tasty and quite hardy. I keep a few jars of the mix on hand for a quick and delicious soup any time.

All the recipient needs is a pound of smoked sausage (skinless, turkey… any kind will do), a can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, some water and little time!

For the recipe card I just threw a little something together in Word. You can download it here. To print them I used Avery Personal Creations Textured Postcards (3380).
