Your Christmas sounds wonderful! I give people pickles and jams throughout the year. Coworkers for birthday gifts, neighbors when they pick up the mail when we're out of town. I donate a few jars to charity drives at work. It's always kind of fun to see what the people who can't return just an empty jar come up with -just got one back filled with dark chocolate from a neighbor.
Last Christmas, we did an all homemade Christmas. To surprise everyone, I put on an elf's hat and did a rendition of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" handing out gift items relating to items mentioned in the poem like jelly and (chocolate covered) cherries as well as hand-knitted items. I got a big reaction, but I was blown away when my 16-year-old niece said they were the best gifts ever. I wonder what to do this year????

ONE OF THE BEST EXERCISES WE CAN DO IS TO PUSH OURSELVES AWAY FROM THE DINNER TABLE.
pickles, salsa, jellies
I like to give:
pickles, relishes, jellies, jams, & fruit breads.
Or if I know the person doesn't garden, some canned veggies and fruits. And for our boys-venison.
Apple butter, fruit jams, banana bread, muffins,...
This year for my brother I am growing some varieties of peppers and am going to freeze them and include a cookbook on sauces.

Shout out to CLARISKA-KAY for making me think of this, but I've love to know what gifts you make of preserved food. I have an aunt who gives me a new relish or chutney every year. I wonder if she'll EVER run out of recipes.
