We love this stuff! Only one family didn't get this. They were headed our way, but had to turn around due to bad weather. This sauce must be refrigerated, and expires in a month.
Jars of home grown sage was the herb I chose to gift this year. Sage can be used to make a tea for a sore throat, as well as other medicinal benefits. It's great on seasoning roasted chicken, frying tofu (for vegetarians), and in pasta dishes. We add it to our macaroni - pumpkin cheese dish, so that recipe was included with sage.
Bottles of homemade Kahlua were gifted. If you are interested, here is the recipe I used: Homemade Kahlua
I'm already working on the list of what to try and make for next Christmas. The kids keep telling me "don't plan" because we have a history of rotten holidays. I'll just create some things, and the plans will just fall into whatever they may bring us. Hopefully good health, wealth and happiness.
I haven't heard from anyone other than my mother, but I hope they all like their homemade, and edible gifts.
