Rice in a Jar--4 Versions

15 mins (prep 15)
14 ingredients
32-48 servings
Give 1 of each rice mixture to one person or individual recipes to different people. Tie a festive ribbon around each jar or baggie and a tag or card with a message that includes THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS: "To cook, combine the rice mixture, 2 cups of cold water and 1 Tbs butter in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and cook over low heat 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Makes 4-6 servings." I got this recipe years ago from a book of "gifts from the kitchen" from the 1970s or 1980s. One recipe each of all 4 mixtures makes 2 gifts yielding 4-6 servings, so the way I came up with total servings is 4 x 2 x (4 to 6) = 32 to 48. (Also good to keep for yourself for when you're in a hurry or to take camping.)
