I am always looking for something fun to make as gifts. This year I am (hoping) to make some flavored salts. I have seen them in food mags but they are soo expensive. But these are easy to make and help add a little something to your cooking. Here is a gift tag to give with the salts. The picture is a little blurry but click on it and the picture in the new window is clearer.
