The first day of Fall, September 22, 1996. Baskets for Mom & Dad R.
and Mom & Dad C. Bags for Granny & Grandpa, Aunt Lorraine & Uncle
Bob, Aunt Candy & Uncle Bill, Donna & Tom. Print out 24 2x4 labels
that say "Homemade Goodies" in black ink, preferably using a laser
printer: 8 Apple Butter, 8 Pumpkin Bread, 4 Banana Bread, 4 Maple
Fudge, and 4 plain. Use a varying size of the TrueType Architect font.
Decorate specific lables with "kitchen crock" stamp in black & a
different bright color for each type of label. Decorate unspecified
labels with "crock border" stamp in black and dark blue. Prepare 2
batches of Spiced Apple Butter according to recipe & store in canning
jars according to instructions that came with the jars. Affix Apple
Butter labels to jars. Prepare Pumpkin Bread according to recipe,
except instead of 2 large loaf pans, use 8 of the small disposable
pans. Remove bread from pans and cool on wire racks. When cool, wrap
tightly with plastic wrap. Affix Pumpkin Bread labels across the top
of the wrapped bread. Prepare Banana Bread according to recipe, except
instead of 1 large loaf pan, use 4 of the small disposable pans.
Remove bread from pans and cool on wire racks. When cool, wrap
tightly with plastic wrap. Affix banana Bread labels across the top of
the wrapped bread. Prepare Maple Kisses according to recipe, except
instead of cooling by teaspoonfuls, divide hot mixture among the
remaining 4 small disposable pans. When fudge has cooled, pop it out
of the pans and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Affix Maple Fudge
labels across the top of the wrapped fudge. In the two baskets,
assemble 1 each of the napkins, Apple Butter, Pumpkin Bread, Banana
Bread, and Maple Fudge, on a bed of tissue paper. Weave fall wreath
decorations into basket handles. Make a big bow on top with the satin
ribbon. In the four bags, assemble 1 Pumpkin Bread, 1 Apple Butter,
and 2-3 apple cider packets among tissue paper. Decorate the handles
with satin ribbon, and place one of the "crock border" stickers on the
front of the bag. You have 2 of everything left then: one for
sampling, and one for company or to bring in to work. Source: Lisa
