In this class, Kelly and Sarah share six recipes for holiday preserves, all of which make perfect gifts for your favorite foodies. From boozy concoctions to pickled veggies, each recipe is super-simple, quick-to-make, and requires a relatively short wait period before they can be consumed. Alcohol-based recipes include a grapefruit-ginger infused vodka, a cherry-vanilla-orange bourbon, coffee liqueur, and orange-fig bitters. For non-alcoholic options, recipes include a zippy preserved lemon, a no-fuss quick pickle, or a tart, sweet syrup called a shrub made from cranberries and pomegranates.
