Best Gifts: Gourmet Preserves & SaltSpring Kitchen Co.

The giveaways continue! This week I am celebrating the holiday season with you by giving away every item on my 2015 Best Gifts for the Home Cook wish list (see the full list here). This is me saying thank you for hanging out with me in the kitchen this year and being an enabler with my recipe writing habit. Honestly, I think I would write on these pages even if I had two readers, but it turns out there are quite a lot of you. So, thank you for spending time here.

Today's giveaway is close to my heart. This year was a big year for me. Huge. I never thought I'd write a cookbook in my life, but I did, and The Canning Kitchen: 101 Simple Small Batch Recipes was published on June 9, going on to become a Globe and Mail bestseller. I still can't quite believe it.

Small batch handmade preserves are truly special. They are the hand knits of the food world, the small gestures and thoughtful touches that say I want you to have something special. Giving someone a jar of something handmade and absolutely delicious is like handing over pure joy preserved under a lid.

I happen to know a woman with her very own small batch preserves company, which has become a huge success in recent years. Melanie Mulherin of SaltSpring Kitchen Co. fills jars with wonderfully creative flavour combinations that are sold in stores far and wide. Her spicy tomato jam is legendary around here on the west coast, and all her flavours go beautifully with cheeses. What else could you ask for around the holidays?!

You can order her products online direct from her canning kitchen on Salt Spring Island. And now you can win a 3-pack right here! Scroll down for more info.

Meyer Lemon & Lavender Marmalade
