Think the difference is additions to the ingredients in yours. Worth knowing what goes into them maybe?

What is the cost per jar? I’ve picked up similar in B&Ms for £1.

Thanks as I don’t have printer I have written it up in my trusty book. Looking forward to making these. Won’t be today though used all plain flour on bara brith and we are 20 minutes from shops. Don’t wish to pay corner shop prices. Really great when you find what you are looking for

I’d make it up in zip lock bags for use at home and grab a bag as and when I fancied . As it’s all dry goods they’ll keep for months . P
