Jars of Joy

The best gifts come from the heart--and the kitchen.

Start a new gift-giving tradition this year: homemade sauces that are simple to prepare and lovely to share. They offer an added bonus to the giver--no trip to the mall. Choose one of these sweet or savory recipes, or select a cherished family favorite from your files. Then dress up the results with a nice container, and rest assured that your gift is the one they'll still remember next Christmas.
