Thrifty Thursday: Mix in the Jar!

Here's a tip I learned on the Food Network show Quick Fix Meals.

When you're making a sauce or dressing, and the jar containing one of the ingredients is nearly empty, use that jar instead of a mixing bowl. Just put all the other ingredients into the jar, close the lid tightly and shake.

This also works if you use jarred soup bases to make broth. When the jar is almost empty, pour a cup of boiling water right into the jar. This way you won't waste a bit!

Thrifty Thursdays is featured at Amanda's Cookin' each week.


  1. That's a great idea Barb!

  2. A great idea. I use it all the time with things like mustard, mayonnaise, peanut butter, jelly, etc. Sometimes I make up a dressing or sauce just cause I have a nearly empty jar.

  3. Love this one! They are like Rachel Ray's "bottom of the jar" recipes.
