GIFTS TO MAKE OR BAKE
There's nothing nicer than receiving a gift that someone has taken time and care to produce. In these days of mass produced, processed food, people genuinely appreciate something home-made with fresh ingredients. And there's nothing like the flavour and satisfaction that comes with hand-made fare.
Here are some recipes to get you started. They're all old-fashioned gems from the days when nothing was shop-bought and preserves and baked goods were produced with love and pride. But there are many more examples you can find on the internet if these don't suit your fancy.
Buy some pretty jars that you can decorate with ribbons and hand written labels for the relishes and a Christmas box or tin for the biscuits.
Perhaps you have some recipes of your own you could use also. Let your imagination run wild and put together a Christmas hamper of hand-made goodies for the people you love.
