Jams, Pickles, Sauces and Preserves
Some of the most traditional gifts in a jar are represented here: jams, sauces, pickles and preserves. These are edible gifts appreciated for the natural taste and intense flavor that only seems to come from a tried-and-true recipe lovingly prepared by a home cook in her own kitchen.
Homemade pickles and preserves often become family favorites if not the stuff of family legend. Try making a jar or two - I'll bet your family will love them!
