Spice Blends to Make for a Homemade Food Gift
If you don’t want to give sweets to your family or friends, think about one of these Spice Blends to Make for a Homemade food Gift! This post has links for 8 different spice blends I’ve made and shared on Kalyn’s Kitchen, and all of these have been a hit with my family and friends.
Through the years I’ve had a few favorite spice and herb blends that I like to mix up in large batches and give as Christmas gifts. When I manage to plan ahead, I order small glass jars to put the spice mix in, but I’ve also given them in mini zip-top bags with the recipe stapled on. Whatever works at this busy time of year, right?
If you’re looking for easy ideas for Spice Blends to Make for a Homemade Food Gift, here are a few ideas for homemade gifts from Kalyn’s Kitchen!
I love this Rosemary and Garlic Herb Rub that’s delicious on pork, chicken, or salmon.
If you have steak-lovers on your Christmas list, this Sugar-Free Montreal Steak Seasoning can make a very popular gift.
One of my favorite spice blends is a Moroccan Spice Mix I discovered in Fine Cooking Magazine. Through the years I’ve loved this mix on Crispy Roasted Chickpeas, Roasted Carrots, and Roasted Butternut Squash.
One of the first herb blends I made and shared on the blog was this Rosemary Salt, my own version of a rosemary salt blend I purchased at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market in San Francisco.
When I want spicy Mexican flavors, I always use Kalyn’s Taco Seasoning.
It’s not that photogenic, but Kalyn’s Herb Blend is another one I’ve given for gifts.
Years ago I came up with this Chicken Seasoning Rub, and it was definitely a hit, although I confess that now that it’s more readily available than it was when I first made this I would happily buy Szeged Chicken Rub (affiliate link) for seasoning chicken! (And no one who cooks chicken would mind getting that as a gift either!)
