This past Christmas, I made up a little something for both my mother and sister. They both ask me over and over how I make my Quick Cucumber Kim Chee. I have an old word processing program that has the cutest collection of recipe cards that you can make yourself. So, I sat down and thought about it, printed out the cards and pulled down some of my empty spice jars. My trusty label maker still worked, thank goodness. And Bob’s your uncle, a nifty food gift.
You could make up a collection of different spices and rubs that you have in your own kitchen, and share them with someone else as a gift. When we first moved to the middle of the desert, I went out to supply our new home. I shared half of each jar of spice that I bought with my mom (she got me an entire case of spice jars 48 in all, when all I wanted was 12).
