55 Homemade Real Food Gifts

55 homemade real food gifts

Giving gifts of food is a wonderful way to bless someone. It can also be frugal and simple (depending on what you are making).

As we all learn more about real food and strive to leave the over-processed goodies behind, it can be difficult to know what to make for such occasions. Thankfully, the blogosphere is bursting with good healthful recipes that are just as mouthwatering (if not more so) than their conventional counterparts.

Today I’ve got 55 real food recipes for you that can be given as gifts. Cookies, drink mixes, spice mixes, sweet treats, butters, jams, syrups and more.

I’m sure you’ll find something to love.
