The final installment of SFoodie's guide to food-crafting gifts for the holidays.
No, seriously! It's not too late to make food gifts. Our last installment of DIY gifts is all about one of the easiest and yet most satisfying: Fruit butters.
Quite simply, fruit butters are fruit that has been puréed and cooked down to a thick, dense consistency. They are easy because they require minimal processing of the fruit, and you don't have to worry about things like pectin. Best of all? You can make them in the slow cooker. So you could buy some fruit right now, get it into the slow cooker this evening, and have gifts at the ready tomorrow, while barely lifting a finger.
So go on, get your butter on for those last-minute stocking stuffers. Your recipients will thank you as they enjoy it over their holiday morning toast or waffles.
