Sweet Hot Peanuts

An edible gift is always a unique way to show someone you care. However, if you want to really dazzle giftees, give them something other than a loaf of quickbread or a batch of cookies. These sweet and spicy peanuts can be prettily packaged in mason jars decorated with ribbon — and even a recipe card, if you feel like sharing it.
