Here's a quick and easy Christmas gift project. Create a salt and pepper gift in one grinder for all the foodies in your life.
I was given a gift of a similar salt and pepper mix in one of those disposable grinders. It turned out to be one of my favorite "go-to" things in the kitchen. I'd grind a little on a hard-boiled egg, over a baked potato, and in a bowl of soup. It sits on the counter next to the stove for a pinch of salt and pepper for whatever I am cooking. So I thought why not make some to use as nice holiday gifts?

Salt and Pepper Grinder Gifts
The original salt and pepper mix appeared to have more salt than pepper so I decided to make this gift close to a 2:1 salt to pepper ratio.
I bought sets of grinders and used them individually for the mix. Each grinder held about 6 oz. So after a bit of trial and error, I came up with the mix of 1/4 cup of peppercorns to 2/3 cup of salt for each grinder.
Once I mixed up the salt and peppercorns I used a simple piece of paper to make a funnel. This made it easy to fill the jars.
I love the look of the rainbow peppercorns in this pretty grinder.
I ended up with 12 salt and pepper grinder gifts and the cost came in just over $10 each. Not bad for a small Christmas or stocking gift.
Here are a few simple tags that you can tie on if you'd like. Just click on the image above and you will be redirected to a pdf page of the tags to print out and use as you wish.
Since my family is a bunch of foodies I know this will be a big hit.
