To make a sweet and savory breakfast basket, include homemade cornbread in a cast iron skillet, orange marmalade in a glass jar, loose oranges and a wrapped log of homemade honey butter. To make the honey butter, simply mix store-bought honey with butter and wrap it up into the shape of a log. Homemade or store-bought orange marmalade is a good complement to buttered toast, a croissant or a toasted English muffin. For a spicy and savory twist on cornbread, add in cheese and diced jalapeño to a homemade cornbread mix.
For the grilling themed basket, place a homemade ketchup and barbecue dry rub, skewers, and a basting brush on a cutting board, and wrap it all in cellophane. To make the barbecue dry rub, combine 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 1/3 cup cumin, 1/4 cup pepper and 1/4 cup sweet paprika, with 1/4 cup thyme, 1/4 cup chili powder, 2 tablespoons coriander and 4 teaspoons cinnamon. This dry rub is good on grilled corn, meat and fish.Learn more about Gift Giving
