HERBAL HOLIDAY GIFTS DESCRIPTION
Holiday gifts can be a wonderful way of celebrating the Yule holiday. Taking time to create your holiday gift can be fun for you and your gift receiver. A gift that you can enjoy putting together of your own spice blends and then bottling them with attractive labels is easy to do and will be enjoyed for the rest of the year. You can get creative designing labels for your spice blends on your computer to make the packaging really special. Here are a couple of some favorite seasoning recipes for gift giving.
HOLIDAY GIFT BLEND RECIPES
HOLIDAY GIFT RECIPE INDEX
CAJUN SEASONING BLEND RECIPE
3 Tablespoons Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Tablespoon Paprika or Smoked Paprika
1 Tablespoon Garlic, Granulated
1 Tablespoon Onion Flakes (Minced)
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Oregano
1.5 Teaspoons Thyme
Mix all the herbs together and grind into a powder, bottle and label. If you really want to make great spice blends, buy your herbs whole or in small pieces and then grind them into powder yourself using a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder. Your seasoning blends will be more potent if you grind the herbs yourself.
