Healthy homemade Christmas food gifts in a jar are a great personal gift you can make for family and friends. Each year I make some edible gifts and I love the time I spend in the kitchen making them and then finding a creative way to present them.
This year I created a trio of healthy homemade Christmas food gifts in a jar:
- Kimchi – I used my recipe here.
- Preserved garlic – I borrowed this fabulous book from the library Real Food Projects – 30 Skills. 46 Recipes. From Scratch. by Kate Walsh and used her recipe. There are so many excellent recipes in this book and it is filled with gorgeous photos – it would make a wonderful Christmas gift! You can see a few of the pages of the book here.
- Roasted peanut butter – I used the same method to make this as I outline in my almond butter recipe – but just with peanuts!
To present the gift this year, I used some very cute plates and some of the ribbon that I have bought for our Christmas wrapping to pull it together. Some recipients of this gift may not be familiar with the food in the jars, so I have made some info cards to print out and go with them.
The colours used (dark green, mint green and gold) are the colours for my theme for Christmas this year. I chose this theme based of things around the house I had already that I could use and repurpose and the only thing I bought was wrapping paper to match the theme!
If you would like to use my info cards as a template and edit the details you can do so using this template I created in Canva here.
These recipes are also perfect for making healthy homemade Christmas food gifts in a jar:
- Almond and chilli dukkah
- Tea in a jar
- Sweet Chilli Sauce
- Vanilla Walnuts
- not a jar but ideas on how to make your own Christmas hamper
Are you making any healthy homemade Christmas food gifts in a jar – if so I would love to hear what they are!
