STOCKING STUFFER: Stonewall Kitchen Maple Bacon Jam

Here’s a spot-on holiday gift for anyone who loves bacon. Bacon jam is a sweet and savory combination that adds a little something extra to most of the foods you eat—breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

You can spread it on toast or waffles at breakfast, enjoy it on a sandwich, serve it as a condiment with your protein at dinner or mix it into the pan juices to create a delicious sauce. Enjoy it as a cheese condiment.

For entertaining, use it to make quick canapés with a bit of cheese, meat or poultry.

While you can make your own bacon jam (a link to our recipe is below), you can also buy it.

Stonewall Kitchen makes theirs from cane and brown sugars, apples, shallots and yellow onions, vinegar and bacon. We had a taste at a trade show earlier this year and put it on our list of stocking stuffers.

An 11.75-ounce jar is $7.95 at StonewallKitchen.com.

Forget Whoppers: Lovers of malted milk balls know how to search out the best malted milk balls. Our reigning favorites are the Mint Chip Maltballs from Marich, malt centers encased in dark chocolate and a mint cookie coating.

But there’s a new entry for your consideration from Fika. Under the snowy surface of confectioners’ sugar are sweet milk chocolate-covered malt balls. The malted milk balls are handmade in Fika’s New york City facility.

At $12 for a clear gift box of 10 ounces, they’re available FikaNYC.com, along with many other treats.

For a respite, drop in at one of Fika’s 10 locations in New York City for coffee, pastry or a light repast.

STOCKING STUFFER: Cowboy Toffee Co. S’Mores Toffee

For toffee lovers, here’s a delightful variation: S’mores Toffee from the Cowboy Toffee Company of Oakdale, California.

There are classic toffees we like better. Our gold standard is the uber-buttery Enstrom’s, which also is made in a sugar-free version. (It has so much butter, you’re advised to store it in the fridge! It’s also certified kosher)

We’ve never seen s’mores toffee flavor before. Enhanced with mini marshmallows, mini graham cracker squares and a cover of milk chocolate, it’s something new, different and fun.

A four-ounce rustic gift box is $9.99. Get yours at CowboyToffeeCo.com.

(Note that the toffee photo on the website isn’t too attractive. We devoured our sample before it could be photographed. The toffee looks much tastier in person.)

WHAT IS TOFFEE

Toffee is a hard but chewable candy made by caramelizing sugar with water and butter. American recipes can add vanilla and other flavorings, plus milk or cream. The ingredients are boiled together at a high temperature until the mixture is golden brown and stiff.

The hot toffee is spread onto a shallow pan or countertop to thicken and cool. The slab is then broken into smaller, irregular pieces. Some toffees are poured into individual molds to create individual square or round pieces.

Here’s more about toffee, including English-style toffee and the difference between toffee, buttercrunch and caramel.

STOCKING STUFFERS & MORE: Mrs. Prindable’s Caramels

We taste many caramels each year, looking for those that are very buttery, easy to chew and bursting with natural flavor.

Mrs. Prindable’s, the queen of gourmet caramel apples, has applied the company’s knowledge of making fine caramel to bite-size candies, available in sizes from stocking stuffer to principal gift.

The company’s new confections include:

  • Aleppo Chili Caramels, with a touch of heat from Aleppo chilies.
  • Hawaiian Red Sea Salt Caramels, enhanced by Alaea sea salt, a red/pink salt harvested off the Hawaiian island of Molokai that provides a light crunch along with the salty-sweet counterpoint.
  • Vietnamese Cinnamon Apple Caramel, delivering tart apple flavor paired with sweet cinnamon.
  •  
    Each cube-shaped gift box contains 12 individually wrapped pieces for $9.95. There’s also a box of mixed flavors ($19.99), chocolate-covered caramels ($19.99), and a stocking stuffer of four chocolate-covered caramels ($5.99).

    The line is certified kosher (dairy) by CRC. Get yours at MrsPrindables.com.

  • Nonni’s Gingerbread Biscotti
  • Nonni’s Pumpkin Biscotti
  •  
    Don’t want spiced biscotti? Try the addictive Salted Caramel Biscotti, embedded with chunks of salted caramel.

    Who knew there were so many styles of Swiss Army Knife?

    We’ve seen them in occasional colors beyond black and the signature red.

    But there are 99 different designs, from animal prints and flowers to camouflage and skateboards.

    For the chocolate lover, the Swiss Chocolate Classic SD Swiss Army Knife is the way to go. There’s a scored chocolate bar on one side; on the reverse side shows the chocolate peeled back from its silver foil.

    The Swiss Chocolate Classic SD Swiss Army Knife is $17.25 and your readers can purchase it at SwissKnifeShop.com.

    Engraving and gift bags are also available.

    GIFT: CapaBubbles Champagne Cap

    Why recork when you can more easily cap?

    Last year we raved about the Capabunga wine cap, a leakproof, spillproof, reusable silicon wine bottle cap that eliminates the need to shove a cork back into a bottle. We loved it and made it a Top Pick Of The Week (here’s our review).

    Now, there’s a version for Champagne and other sparkling wines, that preserves the fizziness in the bottle. It’s stronger than the Capabunga, to resist any built-up pressure from the bubbles.

    CapaBubbles can preserve Champagne and sparkling wine for up to one week.

    It’s affordable enough so that you can include one when you bring a bottle. It’s a welcome gift for a bubbly lover.

    In four different designs, CapaBubbles is $15.95, gift boxed and the perfect size to sneak into a stocking, at Capabunga.com

    GIFT: Whiskey Wedge

    Those who enjoy their spirits on the rocks—with style—should appreciate the new Whiskey Wedge. It keeps spirits chilled without watering them down.

    Simply add water to the glass, insert the mold and freeze. The ice forms into a wedge which melts much more slowly than ice cubes due to the reduced amount of surface area.

    It’s a clever way to chill any liquor, liqueur or cocktail: “on the rocks” without dilution.

    Each unit comes with one double-old fashioned whiskey glass and a silicone mold. It’s $14.95 at Corkcicle.com.

    While you’re there, also check out:

  • The Chillsner, for quickly chilling a bottle of beer.
  • The Corksicle, for quickly chilling a bottle of wine and keeping it cool without an ice bucket.

    GIFT: Party Favor, Stocking Stuffer

    We love Burt’s Bees products. We’ve never found a better lip balm. The beeswax the brand is famous for is both soothing, packed with beneficial nutrients and stick-to-your-lips.

    This holiday season, the company has created an exclusive with Target stores: Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm.

    As a party favor or a stocking stuffer, everyone, young and old, can revitalize dry lips with a lip balm that has a gentle aroma of pumpkin and spice. There’s no flavor—just sprightly seasonal aroma (although, since it is said that 90% of taste is based on smell, it appears to have a bit of flavor that we like very much).

    The balm is free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). We’ve stashed a tube in the pocket of every coat and winter jacket. Now it’s your turn to spread holiday cheer as well as a little TLC.

    The lip balm is $2.99 a tube at Target, and there’s free shipping on Target.com.

    If you want a bigger gift, there’s a combo pack of Pumpkin Spice along with a tube of Vanilla Bean, $5.79.

    GIFT: Gourmet Cheese Box

    We can testify that everything in this gift box is memorably delicious! Photo courtesy Jasper Hill Farm.

     

    Anyone who covets great cheese knows how pricey it is. That’s because there’s so much labor invested in creating artisanal cheese.

    So what better gift for a cheese lover than a box of great cheese? This year, we’re recommending the gift box from one of America’s greatest cheese makers, Jasper Hill Farms.

    The holiday gift box contains more than two pounds of award-winning cheese, plus artisanal pairings. The foods are packed in a reusable wooden cheese box, for a memorable gift.

    Jasper Hill Farm’s 2014 Holiday Gift Box contains:

  • Bayley Hazen Blue (8 ounces). This signature raw-milk blue cheese is one of the great blues, creamy on the tongue with sweet and salty flavors and undertones of dark chocolate and anise spice. A Super Gold winner at this year’s World Cheese Awards, it was also named World’s Best Unpasteurized Cheese.
  • Cabot Clothbound Cheddar (1 pound). Made by Cabot Creamer and aged in the Jasper Hill caves for 10-12 months, this is a bold cheddar with a spectrum of flavors: toasted nuts, savory broth, browned butter and butterscotch. It’s a favorite among Cheddar lovers.
  •  

  • Harbison (1 wheel; about 10 ounces). This soft, pudding-like Brie-style cheese can e scooped up with a spoon and spread on a cracker (or devoured from the spoon). It’s wrapped in a strip of spruce cambium* harvested from the farm. The milky, buttery cheese has notes of mushroom, woodsmoke and brassica† vegetables when ripe.
  • Creminelli Cheddar Salami (a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week). This special sausage includes pieces of Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, which add a pleasant zip and a creamy mouth feel to the traditional salami. It’s available exclusively from the Cellars at Jasper Hill and Murray’s Cheese.
  • Jan’s Farmhouse Crisps (2 ounces). These are the cheese maker’s favorite crackers to pair with their cheeses. Packed full of nuts, herbs and dried fruit, they are thinly sliced and toasted to a light, flavorful crisp.
  •  
    The gift box, $85, is in limited supply. Reserve yours now from The Cellars At Jasper Hill.

     
    *The cambium of the pine (between the bark and the wood) is edible. It can be boiled or roasted as a famine food, and makes a reasonable flour. Fried in olive or coconut oil it’s actually tasty. On this cheese, it’s not meant to be eaten, but you could do it. Here’s more about pine cambium.

    †Brassica, the cruciferous vegetable family, includes bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, kale and mustard greens, among others.
