FYI: Recipe Note Tips - Mixes in a Jar and MORE!
Mixes in a Jar and More! If you’re looking for some fresh ideas for this year’s holiday gifts, travel no further than our collection of recipes and ideas perfect for giving. With just a little bit of work, your lucky loved ones will be awed by your creativity and cooking prowess!
* Spice pouches made of cheesecloth and stuffed with homemade teas, spices and seasonings are perfect for warming up a cold winter night. Make a dry batch of tea and/or mulled spice mix, then stuff spoonfuls of the mixture into circular cut-outs of cheese cloth and tie the bundles closed tightly with butcher’s twine -- they are ready for steeping.
* Chili mix in a jar and cornbread mix in a jar are attractive and wonderful time-savers. And they’ll store for months. Choose your favorite dry chili and cornbread recipes and package the ingredients in see-through jars. Toss in a casserole dish or soup tureen and the gift is even better!
* Gather together some chopped nuts, homemade chocolate sauce, cherries, ice cream sundae cups, long spoons and a whipped cream maker to make ice cream sundae kits your friends will scream for!
Hint: Always attach a recipe to homemade food gifts to make the baking or cooking easier on the recipient and to let them in on the secret of what’s inside. Then, print out our adorable holiday gift tags and recipes in either 3x5 or 4x6 formats, poke a circular hole in the corner and tie them to the gift!
