Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Using your favorite quick bread, bake in a jar, and enjoy later, with out freezing.  First mix up your bread.  Using clean jars, spray cooking spray on the inside of the jars.  Sprinkle sugar on the inside, and coat the sides of the jar.  Add you bread mix, and bake 30 - 60 minutes.  Watch to see when it is done.  Depending on the size of your jar the time can vary.  While the bread is baking, boil your lids for about 3 minutes.  When the bread is done carefully remove from oven, place lid on top, the screw on the rings.  The heat from the jar, and the lids will seal itself.  Add a cute label and enjoy.  Great gift to give to some one who is moving into a new home, shipping overseas, or at Christmas time.
