Right now is a perfect time to think about making homemade Christmas gifts from Fall Harvest abundance. I recently made homemade applesauce and crockpot apple butter which will make nice Christmas gifts. We have also been harvesting medicinal herbs and plants. I am working on gathering enough to dry and make tinctures, hydrosols, and salves. I can see some of these items making their way into Christmas baskets as well.
I know some people think it’s too early to think about Christmas and I am usually that way BUT you really need to plan ahead before it sneaks up on you. These super simple gifts are great to make now while the Fall Harvest is happening especially the applesauce and apple butter.
Check out how we canned homemade applesauce after picking apples from a local orchard.

AppleButter! I love that stuff! I think I’ll take your suggestion and make some for gifts, but I’d better hide a can or two as gifts for myself.
Definitely make enough for yourself. Fresh baked bread and some apple butter will warm even the coldest Fall or Winter day right up!
