It is not too late to cook up so treats to give to hosts and hosteses, friends and family... I just found these Orangettes that I really want to try to make- I may just do it tonight! Sixoneseven is generous enough to share the seemingly simple recipe for candied orange rind. My mother used to make pickled watermelon rind. I never liked it. Spiced almonds is one of my favorite gifts too. If you have more time you could also make your own jam or mustard. Maybe I'll post my mustard recipe soon, posting the recipe may budge me to make some this year.
