BBQ Rub – Gift in a Jar

I cannot believe how quickly Christmas is sneaking up on us.  I thought I was so prepared but I am finding that I am not anywhere near as close as I thought I was! I spent pretty much the whole weekend in the kitchen getting some of my Christmas baking done and I am pooped!  I also made this BBQ rub to add to our Christmas Preserve baskets for this year! It is so easy to make and a great addition to any gift!



These are my ingredients.


I put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mixed until it was well mixed.


I spooned the mixture into the 125 ml mason jars I had…


Put the lids and ring on and labeled them and that’s it….some useful, and delicious gifts in a jar!
