Infused Vinegars, Condiments and Flavorings
Flavored vinegars will keep for six months or more.
Marmalades, chutneys, and preserves can be a welcome change from rich sweets.
Hot Drink Mixes
Attractive jars of cocoa mix, hot tea, and coffee drinks, tied with colorful ribbon, are lovely as hostess gifts or tucked into a gift basket or Christmas stocking.
Cookie Mixes in a Jar
Layer the dry ingredients in a one-quart wide-mouth canning jar so each layer has a distinct color and texture. Include the recipe and baking directions on the label or gift tag.
