Don’t know what to give all the people in your life this holiday season? Give the gift of food! Here are three great food gift ideas!! I’m not talking about shelling out hundreds for holiday gift baskets… I’m talking about creating your own food gifts for the holidays. All it takes is a little time, a few buck spent on containers to pack the food gifts into and a little skill in the kitchen. Here are some great food gift ideas for the year.
I always like to take what people know, and present it to them in a way they wouldn’t have expected. That is what I do with my peanut brittle recipe. This is a take on the classic with some “classy” additions thrown into the mix. What you end up with is something called Champagne Cashew Peanut Brittle. You can find the recipe here.
Toasted Spice Rub
Who doesn’t like to sprinkle a little bit of “this” and “that” on a steak, chicken or chop during the year? This is a simple to make spice rub that adds loads of flavor to everything it touches. I suggest trying it on popcorn as well! Watch the video to learn how to make this super tasty food gift.
This is another one of my go-to recipes around the holidays. I like to have little bowls of these sitting out for people to munch on. They also make great gifts!! If you pack these in air-tight ball jars, they will last for months, if not years if stored properly. Feel free to adjust the sweet and the spicy as you see fit to accommodate the tastes of those you are giving them to. Where do you get spices on the cheap? Here is my tip on that. This video should give you a good idea on how to get started on this great holiday food gift!
