Nuts and nibbles
While your house may not be able to accommodate yet another ornament or pot plant you've been given as a gift, there's always room in the pantry for homemade treats! Edible gifts are easy, inexpensive and a great way to pass on kind thoughts to friends, colleagues and neighbours.
- Preheat oven to 180C. Place peanuts, cashew nuts, pumpkin and fennel seeds in a roasting dish and bake for 15 minutes. Shake halfway through cooking.
- Add butter, oil, curry powder, salt, rice bubbles, noodles and raisins. Bake for a further 5 to 10 minutes until nuts are golden.
- Wait until cool, then store in an airtight container.
Tip! You can change the nuts and seeds to suit your taste, just keep the quantities in balance.
