It’s that time of year again! Time to celebrate our Savior’s birth and rejoice in the GIFT of his love. We love making and giving gifts to friends, family and neighbors at this time of year and have shared many of our creations here at Babyfoodsteps over the years (’10, ’11, ’12, ’13, ’14)!
Wow that is alot of years of home-made goodness and Merry Christmas! 🙂
This year we decided to make an edible gift! After finding these cute jars in the Dollar Spot at Target, I set out to find a project on Pinterest that would fit nicely into them and stumbled acorss this blog post for Cranberry Apple Cider mix. That sounded Yummy! So I headed out to the store to get the ingredients (most I found at Trader Joe’s, except for the cloves):
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
dried cranberries to the top
Then it was assembly line time!
Some ribbon, some berries, the tags and Viola… It was time to share!
About a week before Christmas, I hosted our neighborhood cookie exchange and made a batch of this Cranberry Apple Cider! It was really yummy! I added the above mix to a container of Trader Joe’s Spiced Cider and added a half a bag of fresh cranberries also. Yummy!
I hope you will enjoy this warm winter drink and bask in the the love family and friends and our Savior at this very special time of the year.
Merry Christmas to you all!
