Spice Rubs: Easy Gift Idea

I love these spice rubs because they are so easy to whip up, are great for a frugal budget, and are a practical gift idea.  My kids each took turns helping me whip up a few batches of these this past Christmas.  These are great for BBQ meats!

Here are a few recipes you can try.  Just mix all the ingredients together, and store in a small jar!

All Purpose Spice Rub

2 TBS + 1 tsp sea salt
2 TBS packed brown sugar
2 TBS paprika
1 TBS black pepper
1 TBS dried thyme
1 TBS dried oregano
3/4 TBS cayenne pepper

Creole Rub

2 1/2 TBS smoked paprika
2 TBS sea salt
1 1/2 TBS garlic powder
1 1/4 TBS cayenne pepper
1 TBS onion powder
1 TBS black pepper
1 TBS dried thyme
1 TBS dried oregano

Sweet & Spicy Paprika Rub

3 1/2 tsp paprika
3 TBS packed brown sugar
3 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

These recipes each fill one small Ball jar.  To make your jar look pretty, place your lid on top of the jar, place a square piece of fabric or an upside down cupcake liner on top, and then put the band on and secure.  Tie with a ribbon and label with a tag.
