Sobeys Recipe Corner: Sweet & Savoury Edible Gifts
Gifts made from the heart truly embrace the spirit of the season. And every time your gift recipient indulges, they will have a warm memory of you!
As the holiday season teems with sugar-laden goodies, a small gift of savoury edibles makes a nice surprise.
These crunchy crackers bursting with toasty seeds are delectable on their own, but will bring cheese platters to next-level deliciousness.
Pack them up: Let recipients see all the seeds and pretty thyme garnishes by stacking five to ten crackers, securing the stack with ribbon or twine and wrapping it all up in clear cellophane.
This classic snack is great for the workplace because recipients can enjoy it immediately!
Pack it up: Flip-top jars are airtight, keeping this loose mix both fresh and securely contained. Ty ornamental gift tags to the jars to complete the look.
More of a chutney than a jam, foodies will love receiving this flavourful condiment they can pair with cheeses, roasted meats and fish.
Pack it up: Pouring jam into small, sterilized mason jars makes packaging easy. Be sure to label each jar so people know what’s inside, and top lids with festive fabric for a homemade feel.
Even though sweets abound over the holidays there’s always room for a little more — especially the homemade kind!
Nutty, crunchy, salty and sweet, this easy-to-make candy is the best of all worlds. The hard part will be giving it away!
Pack it up: Small cellophane bags are perfect for transporting sugary treats like these. Secure them with a customizable fold-over tag.
Sweet and juicy with a hit of bitter rind, these candied clementines crowned with chocolate can be enjoyed as is, served alongside truffles or used to garnish cocktails.
Pack them up: Because they are soft and sticky, these slices are best packed between layers of parchment paper in small boxes or tins.
This chocolate spin on the classic Austrian sandwich cookie makes a beautiful, unique and irresistible gift.
Pack them up: Because you don’t want the sandwiches to slide apart, fill a festive cookie tin with cupcake liners and place a cookie in each.
