    Oh, dear, how I miss those good old giveaway times. Still, I think I’m going to pitch in some ideas just for the heck of it.
    Just my kind of fun and so helpful, too. Thank you so much, Helene, for being such a genius!

    If anyone wants to go one step further than your Chocolate Salami recipe above, Helene, they can try my Chocolate Chorizo recipe here:

    I love dressing my chorizo logs up in rustic paper and tying them with string to look like they came from Spain!

    Thanks for another of your brilliant ideas!

    ThermomixBlogger Helene 24 October 2012 at 1:01 am (PERMALINK)

    Great Madame, and thanks for mentioning. I do this too, with butcher’s paper and twine etc and it’s a huge hit every time. I love this one because I’m not so good at ‘accuracy’ with details such as making pretty little chocolates and decorating with piping tools. The salami/chorizo is so forgiving that the imperfections make it even better and more realistic. I simply can not imagine NOT making this. Oh yes, it’s also great because you can make them big or small, depending on the occasion or number of guests. What I like to do is serve one to share at table after dinner and let everyone go crazy … then, as guests are leaving, give them a little one to take home for those who like to indulge in the dark — if you know what I mean ;-) This is a REAL hit, as long as they don’t squeal too loudly and wake the neighbours as they head off into the night… Cheers!

    Thanks Helene for mentioning my handmade chocolates, they always go down a treat! In the not so edible category but useful and good as a present too is the Thermomix Lemon cleaning concentrate: all natural and versatile! Or why not this clementine vinegar, sooo easy to make!

    Gretchen and Helbels, I agree! Love the citrus curd and have made it often. Usually I gift it to myself but when there’s enough ‘leftover’ to give to others, they always go crazy for it. It’s an absolute winner of a recipe and one that I never would have done without Thermomix.

    ThermomixBlogger Helene 24 October 2012 at 1:44 pm (PERMALINK)

    Wow Marnie! Thanks for this suggestion… I think the Creton is probably an acquired taste for most people and might be best suited as a gift for people in Eastern Canada (?)… but you are right. I give little pots of these to family members whenever making some for myself and it is ALWAYS received with a squeal ;-) Even better would be — as hostess gift — a jar or pot of Creton and a loaf or braid of freshly baked bread. Now I’m hungry!

    When strawberries are cheap, you can’t go past Tenina’s Va Va Voom Vanilla and Strawberry Jam. It smells amazing (and tastes great too!)

    I’ll also be popping a bag of dukkah in my hampers. You can replace the macadamias with almonds or hazelnuts (my favourite) in the following recipe.

    ThermomixBlogger Helene 24 October 2012 at 9:28 pm (PERMALINK)

    I gave my sister a bit of Tenina’s Umami Paste and I’m sure we’ve got another addict, so that’s one for me (I’d love to receive it, too)

    I can’t believe you missed your bacon jam, any of the 2 versions although maybe the sweet one is more christmassy.

    I think they both apply because they’re scrumptious (I eat them off the jar) and can be put in a beautiful little jar with a ribbon and all.

    My comment must be too long as it is not accepting it. Trying again:

    Last year I made a lot of people foodie gift baskets, made in cute little jars, of Thermomix goodies. I intend to do the same again this year, as they all brought their jars back wanting refills! I have been keeping a list of ideas for this Christmas, so here they are:

No worries, they WILL all show up eventually, as you can see now ;-) I appreciate the variety of recipes you offered, and thanks for the reminder about Onion Jam. D’oh!

    We went to King Island for our honeymoon and bought numerous rounds of King Island Cheeses. When we returned home, we made toffee popcorn, (put into jars once it was set), and Worcestershire sauce, (in bottles). Those three items made Christmas Hampers for everyone that year. It was inexpensive, and they were all a big hit!
    Worcestershire Sauce (on Steph Berg’s blog) (We accidentally dropped in way too much chilli, but it was still delicious!)
    The ratios of ingredients for my sister’s ‘old school’ (not yet converted to TMX) toffee popcorn recipe are as follows: 1/2 Cup sugar, 1 1/2 Tablespoons butter, 1 Tablespoon golden syrup, 1 Tablespoon Honey.
    PS, I really want to win the recipe books!!! Come on, 15th November! :-)

    Hi, I have a couple of recipes that have been a real favourite over the past year or so that I have been giving out food-ish gifts. Hope they help

    Burning Love Spice Rub – this is really easy and just fab with just about anything

    Apple / Raspberry Paste – like quince paste but with everyday ingredients and SO yummy with cheese (or just on it’s own)

    And then there are two chutneys which are a real favourite – even with me…. the (normally) non chutney person
    Sweet Apple Chutney – (great with cheese)
    Tamarillo Chutney (we now use this instead of tomato sauce at a BBQ)

    Enjoy and have a safe and happy holiday season

    This are some of the recipes that I think will be great for give away

    I will be making chocolate almond biscuits. I love that I can make these gluten free by swapping the extra flour for almond meal. They are crisp and have a great chocolately flavour. When you roll them in icing sugar they look very professional as they rise and crack when cooking. You can find the recipe here.

    ’twas the night before When all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse
    The kids were asleep and I snuck out of bed
    And whipped up a batch of TM gingerbread
    With careful precision and a whole lot of love
    I crafted yummy Christmas trees and turtle doves
    I slipped the gifts into the stockings with care
    And snuck back to bed before they knew I was there.

    Caramalised Capsicum is a fabulous gift – I have people bringing the jars back to be refilled. I agree with the method at this link – from Merlot but…
    1 kg red capsicum – this yields about 760 grams after seeds etc removed – burn off the skin as this results in a sweeter jam
    4 small red onions
    6 cloves garlic
    550ml white wine vinegar
    5 cups sugar
    chilli to taste
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional but fabulous!)
    This makes about 6 medium jars. Wash them in soapy water, rinse and then place in the oven till dry. When you fill the jars with hot gorgeous stuff, put the lid on and turn the jars upside down. When cool, turn over and the lid should have popped down. You can store in the cupboard for up to 12 months. If the jar doesn’t ‘pop’ place in a saucepan cover with water and boil for about 10 minutes. Remove carefully etc…
    You will need to make this now as it needs at least a month for the flavours to develop.
    Hope you try/like it

    I know that this is for TM recipes but…. Take one bottle of vodka. Open and have a shot or two. Slice 12 vanilla pods in half (you can buy these off the web for so much cheaper than at the supermarket!) Place vanilla in the bottle, seal and put under the sink, next to the dishwashing powder (this is to make sure you don’t forget about it…) Every week or so, shake the bottle. By this time next year you will have the most divine vanilla essence! Simply bottle and give as gifts.
    The boozy vanilla beans can be place in the TM with some glycerine and blitzed to blazes – lots of scraping down of the bowl but you end up with a cheats version of vanilla paste – again, put in tiny jars for gifting

    I love to make candied nuts for friends as Christmas presents. They are not only yummy as is straight out of the tin, but you can use them in salads. They go well with salads which also contain pears or apples and cheeses. Yum! The recipe can be found in the german recipe community “gebrannte Mandeln” by Thermifee.(who also lead me to those great spatulas!)

    Last Christmas I made these shortbread bites with an orange twist – delish! Everyone loved them. Actually the orange sugar itself is lovely! I just used Christmas cookie cutters and sprinkled the orange sugar over the top.

    Not sure if it’s already been added but Sugar Free Jam from Jo’s Quirky cooking blog. I spent ages looking for a recipe pre-thermomix so just love the fact that it is now so easy to make and such a no-brainer for gift giving. I love making small pots of jam to give to friends, make my own labels or get the kids to do some artwork and tie with an appropriate ribbon.

    it’s not that exciting but I have several friends who love receiving a gift of the Thermomix Chicken stock (again a Quirky cooking recipe at the bottom of this page ). So much so that it is a running joke that we have a black market going in thermomix stock.

    Mars Bar Christmas Crackles – although not a thermomix recipe very easy to covert and do in the thermomix. I added a glace cherry on top rather than an M&M.

    I haven’t yet made this in the Thermomix (because I’ve only had it for a few weeks) but it makes great gifts – they’ resemble baked marzipan (similar to chewy almond biscuits) rolled out in sticks of about 5cm, decorated with runny icing in zig-zag or each end dipped in chocolate.
    The recipe would be easy to make in the TM:
    500g ground almonds,
    500g ground raw sugar (powdered),
    4 eggwhites (interval speed).
    Wrap in plastic and leave to cool in fridge for a couple of hours before you roll out and bake in 200degC for 10min. Ice or dip in chocolate and leave to set – wrapped in a colourful cellophane bag, these go down a treat for any festive event!

    Hi Helene, I’d just have to make some of your chocolate salami!!! It looks soooooo good. I’d wrap in cellophane and tie bon-bon style for a decadent Christmas treat. Thanks for a great site.
