Each year, we rack our brains trying to think of the most creative, delicious and cost-effective ways to send mishloach manos to friends and family members. Purim baskets have become more than just a way to fulfill the mitzvah of mishloach manos; they are a way to connect with the people we love, show our creative sides and bring smiles to the neighborhood. But for many of us, the sheer amount of mishloach manot we need to prepare makes this a rather exhausting task, and one that we would much rather outsource somehow, even at great expense. These homemade mishloach manot ideas will not only help you save money as you cook your own food, but they will turn the “work” into a fun experience for the whole family. Each year GKC reviews and tests numerous recipes to find the ones that we think make great gourmet gifts. Try these out and stay tuned for more ideas next week.
