oregon or pnw food gifts?

As I mentioned earlier, I’m co-teaching a Gifts from the Kitchen class for the MFPs, in conjunction with Lane Community College, this October.  As we’re preparing our materials for great gift baskets for the holidays, I thought I’d ask for more ideas.

What kinds of Oregon food gifts do you bring to people out of state?  What food represents the Willamette Valley, Oregon, or the PNW to you?  Is it jam, fruit, candy, vegetables?  Do you bake any special Oregon treats at the holidays?  Do you have any particular food gifts you give from local Eugene companies?  I’d love to hear from as many people as possible, so I can present a comprehensive list.  Thanks and have a great Labor Day weekend: don’t work too hard!
