I'm planning on giving a lot of homemade food gifts for Christmas this year, but many of my relatives live in other parts of the country. What suggestions do you have for things that will stay fresh after a couple of days in the mail, and that will survive being packed up and shipped from New York to Colorado? (for example)
My ideas so far: caramel corn, shortbread, quickbread, some kinds of cookies, preserved lemons (if I pack the glass jar very well), harissa (ditto).
You deserve a cookie.
