But if you're in a cost-saving mode or aiming to green your holiday gift-giving, you may want to consider creating a cooking basket.
Throw together a basket filled with locally produced or sustainable coffees, teas, sauces, or other cooking treats. Add in a bamboo cutting board, which is more sustainable than the plastic or silocone counterparts, or an out-of-print cookbook from a used bookstore.
You could also include homemade spices or rubs in bags or jars. Here are a few recipes to whet your appetite:
- Cracked Pepper Seasoning Blend
- Emeril's Creole Seasoning
- Herbs de Provence
- Rustic Rub Spice Blend
- Other Homemade Spice Blends
