As I was cleaning my fridge one wintry day, I discovered a mass of spoiled olives, jellies, and other suspicious matter in jars. After emptying and cleaning the jars up, and because I like to recycle in creative ways, I made them into holiday jars filled with pine-scented soy candles with matching miniature tree lids.
When I made this, I cut everything in half because it was for just three of us--and there were still enough leftovers for breakfast. It turned out really great, for sure. But I'll share the original recipe and quantities here, since it seems more likely that you would feed a large group with this one.
