Trades are one to one. Be sure to partition items into a serving for one to one trades (i.e. if you made a cheesecake or pie, cut it into serving slices before packaging) – better yet make mini pies or pies or cakes in jam jars. (if you have a larger container of canned item it does not trade for 2-3 of other items, it goes 1 to 1 so make sure to consider that in packaging. If you bring a quart size jar of a canned good, you will be trading for what could be a 1/2 C size of jam, so please consider that when packaging your items. Sometimes feelings can be hurt if people don’t want to trade their large size items for a smaller size of something.
