Sweet Holiday Gifts

1. Save some empty jam/jelly/condiment jars.

2. Using scraps of scrapbook paper or gift wrap, and paper or stickers, cover lids and make labels. I used spray adhesive.

3. Fill jars with something yummy! I used this simple recipe for "Cranberry Orange Honey" from:

Cranberry Orange Honey:
3 cans whole berry cranberry sauce
12 oz. jar of orange marmalade
1 1/2 c. honey

Melt together cranberry sauce and marmalade. Recipe said to do it in the microwave, but I did it in a large saucepan. Add honey and stir well. Keep refrigerated.
Makes 8 cups (6-7 jars).

3. Decorate jars and/or lids with holiday stickers and ribbon. These will make great holiday hostess gifts!

Save some for yourself! I cooked a pork loin in some...delicious. I have a few more jars. I think I'll make another batch.

How funny! I just cut that recipe out and thought I'd be making it.
Great minds think alike.

Like I've always told you, who needs a cookbook when I can read you blog?
