Having a big family reunion this summer? Or perhaps a rustic outdoor wedding with a huge oak barbecue? Then give what my high school bestie Jaime and her husband Jeremy did: custom spice blends in tiny jars, complete with a custom brand logo, ingredient list and suggested uses. Adorable! We loved our “little jars of magic,” as we dubbed them — they came in handy while we were in town for the wedding, as we were camping out in Redwood National Forest and had a spartan pantry of seasonings. A sprinkle on our camp-grilled salmon was delightful, and, as mentioned on the label, it was indeed great on popcorn! If you’re interested in making your own, a quick Googling brought me these great little jars, a steal at $.37 a piece! And as for spice rubs, I’ve always been a fan of Seattle Chef Tom Douglas’s spicy salmon rub (just use a tad less sugar, maybe), and Epicurious has a spice rub to match any occasion. I hope your guests find these little favors as savory as we did! –Megan B.
