Each year I try to come up with a homemade treat to give to family and friends that drop by over the holidays. Usually it's some sort of baked good. The last couple of years, I've used ideas shared by my pals in the blogosphere. Noble Pig in particular has struck my fancy more than once. Last year, I made up several batches of her Chai Concentrate and this year it was Brown Sugar. Yes- you read that right- homemade brown sugar!
So, simple but so sweet. I made up several batches and put them in canning jars. I attached a recipe for Caramel Sauce so my giftee's would have some inspiration to use the brown sugar.
Do you have a favorite treat you make during the holidays to give as gifts? Have you received something that made you stand up and take notice? Share your stories, I'm always on the lookout for new inspirations!
