Hi all Cheesy

I usually make edible things for people's christmas presents and due to circumstances this year I need things that can be posted, *and* also have a longish shelf life. So things preserved in jars are out because they're too heavy; stuff that needs to be eaten straight away ditto because I need to make in advance to avoid last minute chaos.

I will do a search too, just wondered if anyone have any tried and tested recipes they can particularly recommend?

How about spiced nuts or cereal mixes like Chex Mex? Both would only need to be in an airtight container. Smiley

Tea blends, herb mixes (can also be dubbed "meat rubs"), granola mixes, dried oatmeal/dried fruits/nuts mixes (overnight soaking, morning eating), spiced nuts/pumpkin seeds.

i often give dried nuts and i feel that everybody like it. However, i think that you can change it this Christmas with some cakes like Choux Cream (easily making) and colourful candy
