Holiday Food DIY: Instant Picnic

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: The centerpiece of this lovely picnic spread is homemade pork rillette, a type of charcuterie that preserves meat in a rich preparation. Candy Wong of Dessert By Candy loves sweets, but uses the holiday opportunity to create a hamper that's built around a not-so-sweet option for those who are trying to stay away from sugar. --Genie

A Gift Of Instant Picnic

It is the idea of an instant picnic that inspires my savory holiday hamper. A good number of my friends actively avoid refined sugar so despite my good intentions, a gift of homemade cookies and candies is not terribly thoughtful of me. I filled a small seagrass basket with a jar of pork rillette, a jar of pineapple fig ginger chutney, a bamboo spreader, bacon pecan pralines, and macadamia pumpkin seed brittle. The sweets are included because no picnic is complete without dessert (and I strongly encourage sharing).
