  1. Jelly Curls

    Hide

    Roll out puff pastry into a rectangle, and spread a thin layer of homemade or store-bought jam on 1 half. Fold the other half over. Lightly brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle generously with sanding sugar. Slice dough into 1/2-inch strips; twist and curl each. Arrange on baking sheet, and freeze for 15 to 20 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees until golden, about 15 minutes. 

    Storage: Unbaked jelly curls can be frozen for up to 6 months.

  3. Dilly Beans and Spiced Nuts

    Hide

    Give a Bloody Mary lover a batch of delectable homemade dilly beans. The spicy, pickled green beans make a tasty, unexpected garnish (and are equally enjoyable on their own). 

    Add two types of flavored nuts -- spicy almonds and smoky cashews -- for serving alongside. Finish the gifts with simple paper toppers (round for the beans and wide bands for the nuts) secured with twine. 

    Download our clip-art label and a Bloody Mary recipe to complete the presentation.

  4. Stew in a Pumpkin

    Hide

    Small sugar pumpkins make seasonally appropriate bowls for hearty servings of robust stew. The pumpkins are hollowed and baked before being filled. Intense heat concentrates the vegetable's sugars, bringing out its natural sweetness -- so you can enjoy its rich, dense flesh as you spoon out your stew. White beans, red pearl onions, baby peas, and turkey sausage make up the deep-flavored mix.

  5. Good Thing

    Hulling Strawberries

    Hide

    Use a grapefruit knife to hull strawberries. The curved blade will cut away the stems smoothly while leaving most of the fruit intact.
