Following the recipe in A Year Between Friends, 3191 Miles Apart, I’ve been making spoon oil, a conditioner for wooden spoons, cutting boards, and bowls.

I’m planning to share little jars of Spoon Oil as Christmas gifts for friends. Last year I made Dictionary Paper Christmas Trees and Five Pointed Origami Stars. Another year I made hand-sewn lavender sachets. And for many years, I made Cider Beetles. Every year I make cut-out sugar cookies.

Making simple gifts like this is a holiday tradition for our family.
