Holiday Food Storage Gift Ideas *2009*

It's that time of year when we start to think about family and friends and showing them that we appreciate them. What better way to rotate your food storage than with Christmas gifts?

One of the gifts I'm giving this year are little pots of wheatgrass (tutorial here). Wheatgrass is grown from regular wheat kernels (i.e. cheap!). This picture is taken exactly one week after I put the wheat in water.

Look at the root system that's developed after only a week!

This is two weeks from starting. You can pick up darling holiday mugs at a dollar store--or tie a festive ribbon around a terra cotta pot. Quick and easy!

Here's another idea: make up big batches of granola and package them up in bags with festive ribbons. There are two food storage friendly granola recipes we love here and here.

Here are some holiday gift ideas from last year:

I love this idea. All them are so great and cute. How creative.

I tried your granola recipe. It turned out great and I especially enjoy it in my yogurt. Thanks for sharing.

I made this and have decided to make it part of my homemade Christmas gifts pack... complete with a loaf of bread, hot cocoa mix, granola, and maybe a jar of canned beef stew.
