I forgot that I'm also doing apple butter and peach preserves. I've finished the apple butter but I'm waiting until Friday to do the peach preserves. Smiley

I'm thinking of doing cookie mix in a jar, but I love the idea of soups too!  If anyone has any recommendations for recipes, I would love that!  Smiley

Last year, I used this mix. My husband's grandmother said it made so much she had to freeze it and have friends take some home. It's amazing how pasta, barley, lentils, and split pea expands. I love how beautiful it looks with all the different colored pasta.

I'd actually like to try this one again but use themed pasta like ones for a person's sports team, occupation, university, or favorite animal.

Thanks for the soup link!

I talked to my sister earlier and we decided that we're definately doing soup mix for our grandma. My mom always talks about how she used to cook all the time but can't do a ton anymore since her stroke so I'm hoping that having a mix on hand will make things a bit easier for her. And bonus if it gets to look all pretty with colored pasta.

bisccotti make an impressive gift as well.
Have you seen those tiny pies cooked in short mason jars? not a very practical gift, but super cute.

We have made Lemon curd, piccalilli, and apple pear and blueberry jelly so far. Next week we are making marmalade, cookies, chocolate truffles and peppermint bark!!

My kids always spend a day with Grandma at the beginning of the Christmas school holidays to make presents for the family. They started going as soon as they were old enough to stand on a chair at the kitchen counter and even though my son is now 20 and away at university he still wants to go for his 'making day'

I typically give berry jam, peach jam, and I'm thinking of making candied walnuts and spiced cashews.

Oh and some puppy chow.

keynko--how do you make lemon curd?
