Homemade gifts

I find that homemade edible gifts are the best to give in keeping with the spirit of the season. Offering something from your own kitchen with your personal stamp to your friends and family is the best way to celebrate the season. Any one of these gifts would make a lasting impression with your friends and family.

 Cardamom flavored Cashew shortbread

What could be better than homemade garam masala powder as a Christmas gift? Garam masala powder will add flavor and aroma to the dish.

My most popular pomegranate jelly

Sweet and spicy cocktail nuts

Some more ideas for homemade gift baskets

*Almost all these recipes are adopted from my cook books. Both my cookbooks will make great Christmas gifts.
