This recipe for homemade Hot Apple Cider Cinnamon Spice Mix is amazing! It's easy to make with few ingredients and makes for a perfect DIY Christmas food gift! Stir into hot apple juice or red wine for a delicious and warming holiday drink!
DIY Spice Bags make a lovely, thoughtful gift, and can be adapted to suit the taste of the recipient. Any edible, dry herbs, spices and flowers can be added; here we have gone for Warming Christmas flavours, but combinations such as Mint and Chamomile, or Rosehip and Orange are equally delightful. Post includes lovely apple juice recipe.
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.
