We’re really looking forward to all of the fun that the holidays bring. This is one of our favorite times of year here in the shop; hot cider being mulled to warm you from the chilly winter wind, customers in town for the holidays running into family and friends they haven’t seen in a while, and sharing recipes with new friends being made here in the shop!
What better time of year is there to spend time in the kitchen cookin’ up yummy delights for your friends and loved ones, whether it was your Turkey Day spread or the many holiday meals you’re probably in the process of planning now; Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza – we’ve got lots of ideas to share with you. We can show you how to kick up your tired, old green bean casserole and creamed spinach and turn them into something that will keep them coming back for more! Make your mac n’ cheese SMOKY or add some heat with our ground chipotle. Put a new spin on your “holiday ham” with our recipe for Maple Garam Masala Ham Glaze or try roasting your chicken with our Tan Tan Moroccan blend or Ras el Hanout with preserved lemons, dates and apricots.
The holiday season can be a busy time, so we’ve come up with some handy gift ideas below for you.
Savory Spice Shop’s Gift Guide
Whether it’s a holiday or hostess gift, stocking stuffer, co-worker gift or corporate gift, we’ve got something that will make everyone on your list happy this holiday season.
Really wow them this year with one of our palette-pleasing gift sets, guaranteed to not be re-gifted! We have some new sets lining our shelves including 2 organic selection sets, “Better Baking”, “Surf n’ Turf” and “Pizza & Pasta Pairings”. Or we can help you create your very own custom set like no other! We can even customize the labels for that extra special touch.
Our 2 and 3 jar box sets can be customized with the herbs, spices and blends you choose to create your own masterpiece. We helped a customer create some amazing teacher’s gifts, all for under $10 each!
Choose from over 16 holiday tubes filled with our blends, like Peruvian Chile Lime, Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar or Red Rocks Hickory Smoke Seasoning. Paired with one of our recipe cards, these make for great stocking stuffers. For all those well-behaved this year, there will be no coal!
To keep those you love warm on these cold winter nights, give one of our hot chocolate blends. We’ve added non-fat powdered milk and powdered sugar to our cocoas along with the right blend of spices to create these ready to drink hot chocolate mixes. With 4 flavors to choose from – Classic, Canela, Chai and Chile – there’s one for all!
We have plenty of spice wares for those on your list as well. Choose from some of our favorite books, like Healing Spices or The Busy Cook’s Guide to Spices, or from our many spice tools. Treat someone to a beautiful pepper mill or complement a gift set with a microplane. One of our 6 different spice racks will help your loved ones showcase their spice collection.
Here’s to eating well and Happy Holidays to you all!
