I absolutely love spicy food and a good chilli jam really hits the spot. This chilli jam recipe from Delicious mag is quick and easy to make, and would make a lovely gift for a fellow spice lover. Alternatively you could serve with your ham or cheeses.
Gift: This apple chutney recipe is ready-to-eat straight after you've cooked it, but you'll find the flavours mature and change over time into something even yummier! I personally think it tastes best after 3 months or more. The unopened jars will keep for up to 2 years or so, but I'm sure they'll be eaten before then! Once opened, the chutney should be kept refrigerated and eaten within 3 weeks.

Gingerbread cookie cottage - really nice recipe, well balanced spices and it's a nice texture, softer instead of v.crisp. Made this as biscuits rather than a house, ended up with about 90 very tasty biscuits.
