Holiday Gift Giving from Food Storage

It's time for  neighbor and friend gift giving, and what is better than giving what you already have (and rotating your food storage to boot)?  Here's a quick idea you can use with your wheat.

 I picked up this glass/jar from Goodwill for 99 cents, but you could easily use jam jars or whatever you had on hand. I simply filled it with wheat (about 1 cup and a half), printed the recipe on some festive paper and tied it around the jar using some fabric scraps.

The recipe I used is the blender whole wheat pancake recipe, and I like it because you don't need a wheat grinder in order to make the pancakes, all you need is a working  blender. It's a great introduction to whole wheat.  But you could use any wheat based recipe that you love and would like to share the recipe with your friends.

Awesome idea! This way I can give some healthy eating influence on my friends cleverly disguised as a gift. FreemanX Experience Gifts - Gift Idea Specialists across Oz & NZ
