Cus­tom gifts from my kitchen to yours

The Advance of Bucks County - - POLICE REPORTS -

Giv­ing gifts from the kitchen of­ten sum­mons the most grat­i­tude. Why? Well, you can tai­lor the in­gre­di­ents to the re­cip­i­ents. In­gre­di­ent gift jars al­low for cus­tomiza­tion.

I love the idea of mak­ing the jar spe­cial for my friends and fam­ily. If you look over the in­gre­di­ents in the dif­fer­ent recipes, you Fan GeFLSheU whLFh UeFLSes fiW whLFh peo­ple. For in­stance be­ware of in­gre­di­ents to which a friend may have an al­lergy. Look also for in­gre­di­ents that are fa­vorites.

Tra­di­tional jar recipe have been cook­ies, but the truth of the mat­ter lies in any dried in­gre­di­ents. Place the dry in­gre­di­ents of any sauce, bread, cake, dress­ing, etc. Add an at­trac­tive tag telling what other in­gre­di­ents to add and if all of the dried in­gre­di­ents are used. With this in mind, the salad dress­ing jar be­low only uses two ta­ble­spoons of the dried in­gre­di­ents, yet the brownie jar is a one shot deal. The chai tea is great given in a smaller con­tainer that some­one could take with them; a travel ver­sion.

While you can buy pre-made gift jars, PaNLng youU own Ls noW GLI­fiFulW anG Fus­tom is al­ways the way to go!

Wish­ing all of you a healthy, and peace­ful hol­i­day sea­son. • 2 FuSs SowGeUeG non-GaLUy FUeaPeU • 2 WeasSoons vanLlla SowGeU • 2-1/2 FuSs sugaU • 2 WeasSoons gUounG gLngeU • 2 WeasSoons gUounG FLn­naPon • 1 WeasSoon gUounG Floves • 1 WeasSoon gUounG FaUGaPoP
