Gift In A Jar: Down Home Cornbread Mix

Colleen Sowa


This is another easy recipe! It is always appreciated!

I sometimes give a little jar with honey or my home made pear honey, and always a jar of home made jam or jelly.

This recipe is great for anyone, but seems like all the single guys like it the best!
