Custom gifts from my kitchen to yours
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!
