I think I just found my favourite kind of gift; edible gifts!
I know these gifts have been happening a lot, but I feel they are usually gifts that are non-perishable, such as a cookie or brownie mix. I like the idea of giving something with a short expiry date on it as it will ensure it won’t end up being regifted haha, also it won’t end up in the back of the cupboard, forgotten for years.
You can use lots of seasonal ingredients to make any of these edible gifts colourful. I think it’s a very cute way of saying “here, I made you dinner”. After you pass them along to your friends, all they need to do is cook or roast and add a couple extra ingredients (such as pasta, water, or stock depending on the recipe) and voila!
I made the recipe for this butternut squash edible gift for the guys of La Crema wines, you can go get the full scoop over here.
