So this year I didn’t make enough Jam to give hordes away like I did last year. However, I did can a few things that would make great gifts:
- Salsa (with a bag of your favorite chips)
- Tomato Sauce (with a bag of fun-shaped or colored pasta)
- Apple Sauce (with the dry portion of this great recipe for muffins along with a recipe card)
Didn’t can anything this year? That’s OK–let someone else do it. Run down to the store, pick out a jar of jam that has a pretty container (Trader Joe’s has a few), and bake up a loaf of bread, or some biscuits (pictured above), or some scones and you’re set! Now you get to keep those cookies for yourself, gain 5 pounds, and feel like the holidays are just what they should be. Did the sudden talk of Christmas cookies make you salivate? Stay tuned for posts from this year’s Christmas Cookie Day.
