Just a quick post with a little photo of the bits I plan to put in the little hampers I’m making up for a few family members. I love these little collections of home-made goodies, and they’re all being packaged wrapped in lots of tissue paper, in gold and silver boxes with patterns on. The ramekin is symbolic – I plan to make some more paté, but clearly this can’t be done too far in advance or it won’t last. I have also considered making some mini mince pies, but I’m debating whether they’ll survive the trip home or will end up crushed. So currently, each little box consists of:
- A small bottle of either mixed fruit vodka or raspberry and honey whisky
- A jar of home-made apple chutney
- One of the mini Christmas cakes I recently iced
- A small ramekin of duck paté
Anyone else making Christmas presents?
