Soup in a Bag in Mason Jars

For those of you who prefer storing meals in jars/breads in jars, etc., you will enjoy this photo.  I am showing some men and women my books this Thursday and so I collected nine different Soup in a Bag ingredients within mason jars.

Moisture Percentages


10% moisture content is recommended using  vacuum sealed storage methods.

I did extensive research by contacting manufacturers and companies for the moisture content on the following items that will be stored in Bread in a Bag and Soup in a Bag recipes:

White flour: 13 1/2 percent
Wheat Flour: 14 percent
Cornmeal: 14 percent
Wheat Bran: 14 percent
Yeast: 8%
Bouillons (Knorr, Herb-Ox): 10% or less
TVP: 0%
Egg powder: 3%

Since we know that white flour stores very well (up to 20 years),it appears that the only issue is rancidity due to oil content.

Soup of the Day

Today I made Italian Pasta Soup, which was a big hit with the missionaries.  Hubby liked it also, and I found it better than I expected.  It's a beautiful soup too, but then I'm partial to red!

Only one more soup recipe to go and then I'll finish re-testing all the soups and do the final review of the book before sending it out for my proof copy!
