Ok, I cannot stop talking about cooler weather! It means fall is here, sweaters, scarves, and all things pumpkin! It also means that I am not avoiding my stove top and oven like the plague, which means when I got my latest order for a gift basket I was jumping for joy! I had already been canning cucumbers like a mad woman despite the heat and humidity, but now I can have all the windows open on a cooler evening, have a glass of wine, crank up Miles Davis, and bust the ol’ recipe cards out.
I wanted to do something just a little different for this gift basket. With the combination of seasonal produce and the love I have for the combination of sweet and savory flavors, I decided to play with both ideas! Nettie’s Bread & Butter Pickles, Jalapeno Jelly, Ginger Peach Jam, and brand new to my recipe collection: Rosemary Pear Butter, were the winners for this little basket. I must say the Rosemary Pear Butter paired wonderfully with my glass of Côtes du Rhône!
The basket has been sent off and I eagerly await to get feedback! But like all batches of pickles, butters, jellies, and jams (oh, my) I am left with a little extra! What does that mean?! Well, for those that are interested in trying some new treats, but aren’t quite ready to make the commitment to a pint size jar, or perhaps you too are in search for a gift basket for someone… Look no further! I have put together a trio of sweet and savory gift bags that need homes!
What’s inside? Three 4 oz. jars! 1 Jalapeno Jelly, 1 Ginger Peach Jam, and 1 Rosemary Pear Butter.
How much? $13
