Remember, I told you that we decided not to exchange gifts with Hubby's siblings this year? Well, I couldn't completely go without presents, mainly because I was preparing for them since late summer:) I decided to share it with all of you because it's a very simple idea. You know, one of those that anybody can do :)
I made some homemade Italian spice mixes for them:
There are so easy to make! It took me since summer only because I was preserving herbs from our garden:) But you could buy your spices in bulk to make this an inexpensive last-minute gift or just for everyday use.
I got these jars from Walmart for a little over $4:
There are 4 4 oz jars with shaker cups and removable labels in the pack. I got mine in the same area where they have canning supplies.
And for the actual mixture you will need (in proportion):
2 TB dry parsley
2 TB oregano
2 TB basil
1 TB marjoram
1/2 TB crushed thyme
Just mix them together and you are done:) But I also like to pulsate the mixture a few times in a blender to make it a little more unified:
And that's it!:)
Are you giving any easy and inexpensive homemade gifts this year?
