a little off topic, but:

my wife and i are fans of breads and dipping oils, so in years past we made baskets of a few oils, along with flatbreads, breadsticks, and maybe a dip.
the oils included hot chili peppers, multicolor peppercorns, rosemary, garlic, and sage. we bottle them seperately in small portions in little fancy corked flasks, and include a couple of small dipping bowls. you can get the flasks and bowls at places like pier one and other crafty stores.

BuckyTom -
mind sharing some of your favorite dipping oil recipes?
(I love 'em too - it would be nice to make rather than buy!)

jkath these sound wonderful. I am going to print them out and keep them handy.

I wonder how you came up with these and all the yummy names.

Thanks a million for sharing.

I have some recipes for cakes in a jar...you literally bake and seal them in a wide mouth jar, then the recipient just takes it off the shelf and pops it on a plate...the brownies are really good, and when I made them, they never made it out of the house. The kids discovered them in the pantry and ate them all for after noon snacks. There WAS a site for them, I found the original at allrecipes.com

Bucky, please be careful with the flavored oil recipes - they can be a real breeding ground for botulism. The ones we buy in the stores are all pasteurized, so they're okay, but if you're going to make them for gifts, keep them in the fridge and be sure to let folks know to use them with a week or so.

I don't make it, but I saw a lovely jar of "soup mix", bottom layer ziti, then beans, dried tomatoes, all sorts of dried vegetebles in layers, very nice looking gift. I recently made Habanero Jelly, I'll be giving this out during Thanksgiving week.

oh, i am marmalady, thanks for the warning. i usually use dried herbs from the garden that are bathed in a light bleach solution then washed thoroughly, before being dehydrated in an excalibur dehydrator. and i sterilize the bottles first and then seal them with red wax. but i do tell everyone to keep em in the fridge and use asap. that's why i make small bottles, also cause i'm cheap :D .

jkath, no recipes really. i just put the particular herb or spice in the jar and fill with a good evoo. it's best to grind some of the herb/spices into a powder to help infuse the flavor faster. my favs is the multicolor peppercorns (be sure to crack some of the black ones), and cayenne oils. actually, i really like the thyme one too, on a good rustic flatbread.
