Food: Box of love

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published December 3, 2013 at 11:09 a.m.

A care package full of homemade goodies is a heartwarming way to show someone far away how much you care.

But not just any recipe is travel-worthy, writes Kelly Brant. Some of the best homemade foods simply don’t hold up to the bumps and temperature fluctuations.

A general rule is if the food is still good stored in an airtight container at room temperature for five days it will work in a care package. But for international destinations, such as Europe, foods that stay good for two weeks or more are best.

In addition to including a favorite food for the recipient, we think the best care packages contain a combination of familiar and new, sweet and savory foods. For our packages we chose caramels, brownies, blondies, spiced nuts, granola and cinnamon bread.

For the recipes and packing tips, read Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Food section.
