Spicy Tomato Relish
This one is a Christmas favourite with my family and friends. This relish is easy to make (but has a long cooking time – 4 hours), and tastes fabulous. You can make it is hot or mild as you like. You can decorate the jars for Christmas and give them away individually or as part of hampers. Great with cold meats and left-overs. You can link to the recipe here: Spicy Tomato Relish
Moroccan Preserved Lemons
Got an excess of lemons at home? This is a great way to preserve them, and the jars can be decorated so that you can give them as gifts to budding chefs.: Preserved lemons
This is a favourite of mine. Rosemary salt is easy to prepare, stores well, and tastes great on roasted meat and vegetables. Give this one a go: Rosemary salt.
