If your holiday plans are anything like ours, let's just say we'll be going through our fair share of sugar, vanilla, spices, squash, and... oh, come to think of it, let's just make a grocery list. It's the time of year for gathering around the table, and with more Fair Trade Certified produce on store shelves than any other time of the year (hint, hint!), it's the perfect time to extend our gratitude to farming families around the world. While it's true that most of your favorite holiday recipes can be made sustainably by simply cooking or baking with Fair Trade Certified ingredients, we'd like to share a few from own tables and foodie friends, ranging from easy to ambitious.

One piece of advice: Don't overcomplicate your holiday shopping! Fair Trade makes the right choices the easiest ones, so while you're stocking up on things like spices, sugar, molasses, cocoa, vanilla, beans, grains, and veggies, do yourself, your family, and families around the world a favor by grabbing the ones with the Fair Trade Certified seal. When you do, you're making a choice to support responsible companies, empower farmers, workers, and fishermen, and protect the environment.

From our tables to yours, we hope you like these holiday favorites and find tons of other delicious ways to use Fair Trade Certified ingredients. As always, be sure to let us know how it goes by tagging @fairtradecertified in your photos.
