    What a wonderful idea to put colored beans to make soup in such creative looking glass jars.

    I love a good bean soup! I wanted to add that I learned something about cooking raw/soaked beans in slow cookers. The beans contain a toxin that is cooked out at high temperatures (like in a boiling pot or pressure cooker) but not in slow cookers which actually *increase* the toxin levels. O_o I would remove the instructions for a slow cooker if I gave this as a gift.

    I grew up on Bean soup. My father was a cook in the Army and he made homemade Bean soup almost everyday. I miss his Bean soup. Thanks so much for this idea,

    I love the concept of gifts in jars and the shape of this jar makes it even more special. This is a great and simple way to do a gift.

    This is a really cool idea. I do food gift baskets for my parents every year (cuz they have everything else) and this would be a great addition to this year’s Christmas Food Basket. Thanks!
