Hi there,
Thanks for the recipes. I came to this series (365 meals) through "Safely Gathered In" blog.

I have 2 Q's for you:
1. What size canning jar are you using for each recipe?
2. How many (adult) servings/recipe?

Thanks!

We've made this soup several times and love it! We substitute a can of stewed tomatoes for the dried tomatoes and tomato powder. Thank you for sharing!

We do find the soup thickens in the fridge and adding some additional water stretches the soup without affecting the flavor too much.
