This jar of Mango-Lime Jam makes a sweet ending to our week of Culi-Gifts. I hope you enjoyed it and feel inspired to spoil your friends and family with these delicious homemade treats.
Have a good weekend and Happy Holidays!
You can bake your own or by some good-quality cookies at the store for today’s culi-gift. Wrap the cookies in a nice paper bag, design and print your own personalized label and close with a beautiful ribbon or some kitchen string. Easy does it!
As promised, today another idea for an original culi-gift: an empty jam jar filled with delicious flavored sea salt. Simply tie a small Christmas-ornament around the jar to turn it into a cute little present.
This time, I adjusted our recipes for lemon-thyme salt and chili-salt a little. Instead of lemon zest, I used lime zest. And I replaced the dried chili peppers with some fresh Scotch Bonnet peppers. It will give you fragrant and beautifully colored salts. Make sure to let the salt dry on a baking-tray overnight, before you put it in a jar, or it will become rancid.
With the holiday season upon us, the best gift is not just the one that you make yourself but the one that tastes delicious as well!
This week I will give you some ideas for cute culi-gifts. With a Caribbean twist of course! I hope that it will inspire you to spoil your friends and family at Christmas.
I start today with these mouthwatering pickled jalapeño’s. Put them in a nice jar, wrap with some red & white string and a cute gift-tag. You can find the recipe here. Try them, please. They are very easy to make and taste sooo good. You’ll never want anything else.
