Cooking with Kids DIY Spice Seasonings

No Comments
There’s one thing that I really enjoy doing with my son, and it’s cooking!  We recently made a batch of spice seasonings to gift.  Nothing like homemade spices instead of the store bought ones.  You also save a ton of money, too!
We gathered our materials measuring cups, spoons, mason jars and the seasonings.  Then we got started!  Just an FYI it will get very messy!   I also had raffia to decorate and labels for each jar.  We made taco, ranch, Italian, chili and adobo seasonings.

Chili seasoning recipe I used this one here, and for the adobo recipe I used this one here.
These are awesome to give as gifts, too!  Little one sent adobo to his Abuela in Puerto Rico, and she seasoned a pernil (pork shoulder) and his Titi (Auntie) in Mississippi made enchiladas with the taco seasoning.
