One of my favorite christmas traditions is one I've made myself. 4 years ago I randomly clicked on food blog, Food 52, and noticed that they were doing a christmas food swap. I signed up for it with out giving it too much thought. A few weeks later I received in the mail a treasure trove of home made pickles, vinegars cookies, sauces. It was crazy. My poor person definitely got the short end of the stick that year. I think I sent some home made chutney I was crossing my fingers didn't contain botulism (I had just taken an intro to canning class). This year swap haul came all the way from Hawaii which delighted me in such a way you would think air travel had just been invented. Thank you food52 user elbe!
