A Travelling Cook: Edible vegan gifts

Edible vegan gifts

I have often made edible gifts for people for Christmas, especially when I am teaching preserving classes and am keen to try out new recipes. I actually really enjoy giving and receiving handmade goods. There are so many benefits: seasonal excess food can be turned into something wonderful,  you can cook for an afternoon with a glass of wine instead of a trip to a shopping centre, you get the pleasure of making things with your very own hands. Having a few jars of preserves or cordial is always a great way to ensure you have gifts for any unexpected people or situations. 

I've put together a weird and wonderful range of recipes from jams to cordials to donuts. Have a look, there might be something you would like. 



Jams and preserves:
Tomato kasundi
Pickled beetroot
Onion jam
Piccalilli
Spicy pickled cucumbers
Dukkah
Strawberry and rosewater jam
Pear and vanilla bean jam

Drinks:
Strawberry cordial
Rose cordial
Pineapple cordial
Lemon and Barley cordial
Ginger beer

Baked goods:
Beetroot bread
No knead bread
Vegan baked donuts
Chocolate cauliflower brownies
Lemon poppyseed cake 
Seedy flapjacks
Vegan fruit and nut biscotti
Chocolate Bier cake

those cordials sound like great christmas gifts - I never know how long it will last so I am not confident in giving them as presents. what is your advice on that (and are they ok not in fridge?)

Unless cordials are waterbathed (as with jam also) I advise people to simply store in the fridge. It's just the easiest. If you water bath, outside the fridge cordial will last about 8 months unopened if kept in a cool place
