Online Christmas shopping

I realized this week while prowling around online looking for some presents to order with my Christmas Club funds that this is Christmas shopping time online. Not over-hyped Black Friday, but the first of October when savvy online shoppers start their holiday shopping.

Here are a few books that would make great Christmas gifts.

The first is Clara’s Kitchen: Wisdom, Memories, and Recipes from the Great DepressionClaras Kitchen which is a cookbook by the popular YouTube Depression Cooking sensation, Clara Cannucciari.

Another is Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and CuringCharcuterie, a great book on curing and smoking meats. Just reading the description makes me hungry.

Another good book on sausage making and curing is the classic by Rytek Kutas: Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing which is currently back in print. You can’t poke around too many sites about sausage making without seeing a reference to this one!!

Not a book, but the Life on Mars complete series is now on video. I started watching this and liked it, but never saw the conclusion. Now I can!!

I freely admit that the books and dvd set are modest Associates links to Amazon.com.
