Winter Gifts, 2015

We have a wonderful gift collection for you this year, which we’ll give in a reuseable wooden produce basket, wrapped in cheesecloth and tied with red and white twine. You can give it as is, divide it up among your dearests, or simply serve everything to guests, making every gathering around your table extra delicious.
There is nothing perishable in the gift collection this year, so feel free to take it with you on car trips and airplanes, or even to send it in the mail.

What’s in it?
Fruitcake, one pound

2015 marks the 10th year that Jennifer and Laura have been baking fruitcake as a holiday tradition; every year is a little different. This year: dried peaches and apricots from Knoll Farms, French prunes from Filigreen, wild black walnuts from Wine Forest, Germain Robin brandy, St. George spiced pear liqueur, all in our signature light batter. You might say that we outdid ourselves. Note: no children were involved in the production of this fruitcake.
Fig mostarda, 12 ounce jar
With Knoll Farms figs, grapefruit, and mustard, this singular sweet-tart mostarda elevates everything from cheese and charcuterie to a roasted vegetable sandwich.
Woodsy salt 2015, 4 ounce jar
Our woodsy salt is becoming a tradition, and we’ve been talking about this year’s version for some weeks. French grey sea salt, Douglas Fir, juniper, long pepper, bay, and cubeb pepper will brighten your stews and warm your heart.
Pickled chanterelle mushrooms, 8 ounce jar
Wild, beautiful chanterelles from the forest, pickled with champagne vinegar, vermouth, shallots, juniper, and thyme.
Chestnuts in honey, 8 ounce jar
Something new for this year: roasted chestnuts from Inzana Ranch in Hughson, in eucalyptus honey from Bee Love in Santa Rosa. Simply that. The honey flavors the chestnuts, the chestnuts flavor the honey. Beauty.
Winter tea spice, 8 ounce jar
A careful mix of 14 spices and roots and peels and petals add up to a gorgeous mulling spice for wine or cider, or a warming chai-style tea.
