What's a better way to warm up in the winter months than with a nice bowl (or in this case jar) of soup?
We all know how convenient it is to buy a pot of soup from the supermarket. It's usually the right quantity for 2 people and it saves time and wastage. But what if you could make your own portion sized pots of soup?
The best way to store your soup, ready for individual portions is in some lovely glass jars. We have a wide range of glass jars in stock. But for this particular recipe we would suggest using our 277ml KilnClip Jar for a one person portion of soup.
These jars are great for storing soup as they have a strong air tight seal and look fabulous in the fridge. The following recipe will create around 5-6 jars. From our online store you can buy a pack of 6 for just £9 plus shipping. That way you will always have an extra jar just in case. And the best thing about these jars is that they are reusable! Perfect for an eco-friendly and decorative packaging solution.
