Here’s a little sumthin’ that I like to whip up for the cooks in my life.
Super easy, VERY affordable, and looks great when you’re done.
Head to your nearest Bulk Barn or equivalent – any Bulk food store will do.
Next trip, any local Dollar store to pick up fancy labels and jars.

This is the mix I use, and the approximate amounts of each. You can adjust and tweak away to suit your tastes! The entire take home price was just under $20.00 for all the below ingredients.
You can do gifts for almost 8 people (depending on size of the jar) for less than $30.00!!
Chili Power, Ancho Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Black Pepper, Kosher Salt, Basil, Oregano, Rosemary, Cumin & Turmeric.
Uses: Use as a dry rub for chicken, beef & pork. Slather on your favourite BBQ sauce overtop for an extra yummy bonus. Great as a marinade, just add lemon juice!
In a big bowl, I mix:
1 Cup each of: Chili Power, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder
Half Cup each of: Ancho chili powder, black pepper
Quarter Cup each of: Kosher salt, basil, oregano, Cumin, Turmeric
2 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
3 Tbsp Flour (Can be omitted)
Using a wooden spoon, mix up all your spices. Taste test and adjust accordingly.
Spoon into glass jars, add some ribbon or trim, and voila.
Cute, functional and affordable Christmas gifts.
