Homemade Gifts From Your Kitchen

There is special about homemade gifts and it's even more special when they are edible! All these recipes have been adapted to incorporate whole natural ingredients. I have been giving gifts from my kitchen for many years and wanted to share with you some of my favorites.

Sweet Popcorn

For recipe: Sweet nut popcorn

For recipe:Granola

Place the granola in a festive paper bag.



For recipe: Eggnogg

This Eggnogg can be placed in a nice glass bottle. Just wrap a bow around the neck of the bottle with a tag attached. I sometimes include an envelope with the recipe inside.


Basil Pesto

For recipe: Basil Pesto

Place the pesto in small glass jars and top with some colorful cloth that has been cut out in circles and tie with a ribbon. sometimes I attach a card listing all the ways to use pesto. I like to use it as a dip, to spread on sandwiches, pizza topping, or in pasta as a sauce.


Purple Sauerkraut

For recipe: Simple Sauerkraut

Just add a bow to the jar and it's ready to give. You can even include this great book on Fermentation.
