Sweet Christmas Jars - Nanna's Relish

18 December 2016

My beautiful Grandmother (who passed many years ago) would make all sorts of Christmas goodies for gifts; biscuits, jams, chutneys, slices - you know, the general 'Nanna' kind of things! Well she would make the yummiest tomato relish and this year I tried to do it justice. Who knows if I made it as nice as her, probably not! There was no real 'set' recipe when it came to Nan, she would add a pinch of this and a dash more of that - so to those who get 'Nanna's Relish' this year I hope it is as nice on your ham toastie as I remember it!

I had to make them pretty of course (like too good to open, just in case it stinks and at least the wrapping is nice! lol) **Sneak Peak** I used the new Sending Love Glassine Sheets from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue with some brown paper underneath to highlight the cute pattern on them.

Now I'm off to deliver these to the neighbours and some friends, I'll probably be gone for hours! I would love to hear if you make anything in the kitchen for Christmas gifts and if your kitchen is a total utter disaster zone afterwards? (I swear it took me more time to clean than to make the relish!)
