Title: Bread in Jars Zucchini
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Holiday, Ideas

Ingredients:

------------------------------SUPPLIES NEEDED------------------------------
4 Wide mouth canning jars; (1
-1/2 pint )
4 New lids - don't use old
-ones
4 Rings okay to use old ones


-----------------------------------BATTER-----------------------------------
3 Egg whites; whipped
2 c Granulated sugar
1 c Margarine; at room
-temperature
2 c Zucchini; grated
1 ts Vanilla
3 c Unbleached flour
1 ts Salt
1 ts Baking soda
1 ts Baking powder
2 ts Cinnamon
1/4 ts Nutmeg
1/4 ts Cloves

Preheat oven at 325. Place a baking sheet onto middle rack and remove top
rack from oven. Before starting batter, wash jars, lids, and rings in hot
soapy water and let drain, dry, and cool to room temperature. Generously
prepare inside of jars with margarine. To prepare batter, combine flour,
salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. In another
mixing bowl, combine egg whites, sugar, margarine, and zucchini. Divide
batter among 4 jars (should be slightly less than half full). Carefully
wipe rims clean, then place jars on baking sheet (or they'll tip over) in
the center of oven. Bake 40 minutes. Keep lids in hot water until they're
used. When cakes are done, remove jars which are HOT from oven one at a
time. If rims need cleaning, use moistened paper towel. Carefully put lids
and rings in place, then screw tops on tightly shut. Place jars on a wire
rack; they will seal as they cool.

Once jars are cool, decorate with round pieces of cloth. Unscrew the ring
(the lid should be sealed by now) and place a few cotton balls on top of
the lid (makes it poofy on top), then a piece of cloth (about 3" larger
than the lid) on top and screw the ring back on. Decorate as desired
(example pinking shears).
