As is traditional in Down to Earth, Christmas baking ingredients were being weighed out daily, as were herbs and spices (mulled cider seemed to be the drink of the season).

Perhaps that is the spirit of Christmas.

Our International Food Hampers made great gifts, especially the Indian collection. They will be making a return next year. If you are stuck for a gift idea and you have a foodie to please, hampers can be made up at any time of the year. Just come on in and ask and we will be happy to help.
