Lest We Forget

For Christmas gifts, I like to give homemade things. These are given to people like coworkers, extended family (like my husbands, sisters in-laws) and hostess gifts. Over the years we have done cookies, apple butter, mint jelly, apple jelly, and the like. This year I decided to give dill pickles a try. I finished my first batch today, and will make one more batch to be ready. Whatever is left, we will enjoy at Christmas. Do you have any special ‘traditions’ you like to do at Christmas?
(These will be decorated with bow and labels with the date and contents before being given…)
(BTW, if you are interested in the recipe I used, let me know, and I will share. 🙂 )
