Gift Idea Wednesdays: Spice It Up
I love spice blends. My favorite blend is Famous Dave's Steak and Burger seasoning (mentioned here). I looked at the back of this jar the other day and realized how many preservatives go into those seasoning blends. So, I am making my own.
These would make a great gift for friends, family or neighbors. It would be good to include in a gift basket, also. I made a grilling gift basket for my dad this past Father's Day and it actually included the Dave's seasoning. Now that I know how quick and easy it is to make my own, that is what I will be doing from now on.
Steak and Burger Spice Rub
Adapted from CDK Kitchen
3/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
Toss it all in a bowl. Admire the pretty colors
Whisk it together.
You are done. Add it to your jars or whatever. I used half pint canning jars and it filled 5.
Oh, by the way, I made some printable labels for you.
5 minutes of work and now I have gifts for 5 neighbors or friends :)
