Festive Munch Burp Schlurp
I mix up some festive edible gifts, with a variation on
recipe for Cranberry Vodka. I added orange peel and am debating a clove, vanilla, and cinnamon mix next time.
I also share my last minute bread maker's gift hamper: pre mixed bags/ tubs of bread flour and seed butters in pretty jars. For the nut/ seed butters you will need approx 200g seeds or nuts of your choice and to crush them in a blender or coffee grinder. Add 1 tblsp of oil at a time till you get the consistency you desire (usually about 200ml). Keeps for a couple of weeks in the fridge.
