Can You Smell Christmas?

You can in my house!

I have a tradition of making homemade goodies to share this time of year. Today started out a little hairy, so I spent my entire afternoon in the kitchen making goodies.

jalapeno Pepper Jelly

22 Jars - 3 Varieties

Mixed Holiday Fruit Jam

The other jars are Spiced Pumpkin Walnut Butter. OMGosh, you just have to trust me that it smells heavenly in here!

The very best part of making these each year is how much they’re enjoyed. There’s just something special about a gift from the kitchen.

Hmmmm….  I see warm scones in my near future!

    Do you put your recipes “on blog”? They look amazing!! I have a jar full of chillies I grew myself, but don’t know what to do with. That jelly looks marvellous 😀
    I’ve made Crab apple Brandy and Blackberry Cordial(also mostly brandy) this year…so easy and smells wonderful too 😀 XXX
