Spice rubs

Christmas for me is synonymous with barbeques. After all, the 25th is usually far enough into the summer season that you can almost be guaranteed a hot, sunny day to spend cooking and eating outdoors. And if the day itself doesn’t deliver, you can always look forward to a few weeks of summer holiday ahead. These spice rubs make really lovely gifts presented in a pretty glass jar with a festive bow. Give the gift of delicious grilling to your nearest and dearest this year!

The Star Anise and Coffee spice rub is great with steak, while the chipotle and ancho chili rub is perfect with pork, chicken, or even sprinkled over grilled veggies.
