My Soup In a Jar Series

What jars should I use?

If you plan on making these soup in a jar recipes as outlined above then you’ll use 16-ounce pint mason jars. If you want more soup for your family by doubling the recipe then you’ll need quart mason jars (32-ounce size). However, you can adjust the size of the mason jars to how much soup you want to make in the future.

Should I store my soup in bags?

As you will see in some of the soups that I’ve made, there is an option to store them in bags. Just keep in mind that the bags may tear easily.

How long will the soups last?

I have been canning for over 50 years, so safety is super important to me. Keep in mind these soups will store (when canned properly) for around 1 year. However, I encourage you to do what feels best for you! Feel free to consume the soup in a jar in the time frame that feels safe for you!

Final Word

As you are learning to make these soup mix in a jar recipes, have fun with it. You can follow my recipes, but you can also come up with your own. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your family’s favorite recipes! This 3 Bean Chili Soup mix is a great every day recipe. I enjoy making the Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar to give as a gift. The Chicken Noodle Soup Mix in a Jar is perfect for when you’re not feeling well or when you’re craving comfort food. I hope you find this recipe as helpful as my family does. May God Bless this world, Linda.

        Hi Deborah, I place the seasonings in these bags: https://amzn.to/2RQ6kyE (3.5 inches by 5.5 inches). Here is a paragraph you may have missed: Grab a wide-mouth pint mason jar (16-ounces) to layer some of the ingredients shown above. Start with the black beans, pinto beans, and white beans. Be sure and watch for small rocks in the beans. Place the dried vegetables in a baggie and place them on top of the beans. Place the seasonings in a small bag and close it. The seasoning bag will go on top of the vegetable baggie and under the lid.
        I use the cheap sandwich baggies for the vegetables. I put the seasonings in the little sealable bags in the link. Linda

    Thank you for the recipe! I’m not sure about the dried vegetables. I’ve never seen a product labeled this by the food storage companies. Is there a brand or place you get it? I’ve purchased individual dried vegetables but don’t want to open a bunch of cans that are for long-term storage. What is the vegetable combination? Maybe I could dry my own mix this summer. Thank you for your help.

      Hi Kay, yes you can dry your own vegetables. I decided to buy the 2-pound bag because it goes really far. Plus, I feel a strong urgency to make jars of soup for meals. I don’t want to use my expensive freeze-dried vegetables to make these. I bought the bag off of Amazon. https://amzn.to/3tJgyz5 You should see my dining room table, it’s covered with all the ingredients I can make dozens of soups. I’m trying to make one a week. I have to test each one to make sure they have just the right amount of seasonings, etc. Life is good when we have meals ready to go. Linda

    Wow, this looks good Linda. Now that we are having a little cool spell here in Texas I am going to try this. Like the slow cooker method.

      Hi Judy, I love having dinner cooking during the day! These jars are so fun to make. I’m working on one today, I want my pantry to have a few dozen of these jars (different flavors). Life is good when all we have to do is boil water! Linda

    Linda, thanks for the tip on Delish dried veggies. In the past I’ve used dried veggies from Thrive and Auguson Farms but I hate opening those #10 cans, as they are for truly long term storage. Also, in my meal in a jar recipes I throw in an oxygen absorber to keep things fresh longer, (since it’s oxygen that typically degrades long term food storage).

    And this recipe looks very good, though I’ll reduce the chili powder amount since my wife and I prefer less spicy chili. I’d serve it up with cornbread.

      Hi Ray, I decided I couldn’t waste my money by opening the #10 cans for these jars. The Delish veggies are awesome. Mark doesn’t like spicy chili either. But he sprinkles it with grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Cornbread goes with chili for sure!! Love it! Linda

    Linda, I forgot to mention if I’m putting up a bunch of these type meals at a time I use my jar sealer attachment to vacuum seal them.

    Also, I used your clickable links to get the small bags and the dehydrated veggies, as those will keep me from having to open any more of my #10 cans.

    Hi Linda,
    I made this recipe yesterday. House smelled great!!! I wondered, why the cinnamon and sugar? It seemed a bit overpowering for chili to my taste, so I will reduce the amounts of these two items next time . . . and there will be a next time. I love the fact that this recipe goes into a wide mouth pint jar since there is just the two of us. And I have the smaller slow cooker as well.

      Hi Carol, I started the soup mix in a jar in quarts but going forward they will be the wide mouth pint jars. It’s so funny, I learned about cinnamon in chili years ago, so now I always add a smidge. Isn’t that slow cooker awesome, the size is perfect! Love it! Linda

    HI LInda, Long time since contacting you. Have been so busy sorting and packing for our move. I have a large supply of different canned beans. I’ve decided to dehydrate them to lessen the weight and for easier meal prep. You know, remove the water from the beans and repackage in a lightweight container. My question is this, to make this chili recipe with the dehydrated beans how would I change the cooking directions to match??
    Can you help? Hope I’m not asking the impossible. I know that this will be delicious and ways to fix when I’m busy unpacking at the end of my journey. Thank you for all of your valuable posts Keep safe my dear.

      Hi Suzanne, it should still work because they are already cooked beans. Now, even though you dehydrate them, they will still need water but I don’t think you will need as much. Use less water and add more as needed. Great tip! I’m excited about your move, keep me posted! Linda
