This Christmas I'm going to try and get a little more personal with my gift giving to family and friends. I usually give away practical gifts: My mom gets some nice walking shoes or clothes, my viejo gets underwear and socks (he loves this); and my son gets books, toys and clothes.
Well my friends, this year I came up with a gift that comes from my heart and also says a lot about who I am. I’ve decided to make a homemade Christmas gift: Jarred spicy chile de árbol salsa. It says "I Love You" in a way that I believe is the best way to say it: through food!
It's really easy, too! First I went out and bought a bunch of mason jars at my local thrift shop. Then, I went to my local market and bought all the ingredients for my chile de árbol salsa that I usually make and multiplied the amounts by 8! I went home, made the salsa with love and care, jarred it all up and put a pretty bright bow on top of it!
