You heard my mole raves already so I'll keep this short. So, so late this post is, but I lost all of the photos I had taken of the packaging. Luckily just recovered them!
Every holiday we give a handmade item to about 30 of our friends we want to share with. This year we made mole and it was the perfect gift. Mole is made in a clay pot so I wanted to present it in a clay pot. We sourced the perfect simple pots at Mercado Hidalgo in Tijuana. I nestled in fine paper shred and then carefully filled weck jars (the mason's prettier cousin and available at williams-sonoma and west elm) I really wanted to use the tall cylindrical ones, but the shorter, fatter one was perfect for the clay pot. If you're like me, I have so much ribbon and crafting supplies that I decided to pull it all out and use what I had to dress up the pots. I included a very simply printed note that read:
Merry Happy Everything.
In this jar is mole, otherwise known as love. You can’t make it without love in your heart, peace in your soul and a smile on your face. It’s such a beautiful recipe full of tradition and emotion. We love you in our lives and hope this holiday season and close of this year has brought you peace in your hearts, a richer purpose and many memorable moments along the way. Salud!
Happy Holidays from Casa Mirón

I think they turned out just perfect for a small holiday gift. I kinda want to do it again next year!
