I am all about the frugal. I am also all about making things! Put the two together and it can be downright dangerous! So, I gathered up my supplies and all I really needed to purchase was a jar. I don't do canning but if you do, then a 12 oz mason jar is perfect!
I ran to the dollar store and for $2, I purchased a 28 oz glass jar with a screw on lid. (check!) Then, you'll need:
2 1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup olive oil
4 TBSP lemon juice or lime juice or essential oil
Mix all the ingredients up in a bowl. See how pretty the color is? Very springy! Next comes my favorite part! Decorating! Out comes my glorious Cricut Expression! LOVE!!! I used some black vinyl to cut out some pretty parsley images and did some lettering. I practiced first on some cardstock for size check.
