Edible Gifts: Homemade Hot Stuff
Not Your Grandmother’s Treats for the Season
We’ve given enough tins of shortbread. Enough coffee cakes and cranberry breads and special hot chocolate mixes to choke a horse. There was that one year we made spiced vanilla rum from a recipe we stole off the Internet and the whole neighborhood nursed headaches for weeks. This year, when we get the itch to do our holiday gifting the handmade, homemade way, we’re bringing the heat: a little sweet, a little savory, and an out-and-out hot sauce. Something for everyone on your list, with tips for how to wrap them up right.
