an airtight or ziplock bag and attach the recipe card instructions.
Tie the whole jar up with some cellophane or add some curling ribbons and a bow to finish off this gift

1/2 cups flour with the ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice. In a 1 quart, wide
mouth canning jar, layer the ingredients starting with the flour and baking powder
