Peri Peri Rub

A simple gift idea for the cooking enthusiast in the family.
Use this versatile rub to add a kick of flavour to chicken, steak, seafood, or a variety of vegetables (think wedges, sweetcorn…)
There’s not even any cooking required – just mix it all up, pop it in a clean jar and decorate. Job done!


2 Tb soft brown sugar
3 Tb paprika
2 Tb oregano
2 Tb ground ginger
2 Tb ground cardamom
2 Tb garlic powder
2 Tb onion powder
2 Tb sea salt flakes
1 Tb cayenne pepper
1 Tb ground cinnamon





Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or jar and mix well.

Store in a clean dry jar in the pantry.

  • To add some extra pizzazz, layer the ingredients in the jar to give a stripy effect 
(your gift recipient can do the mixing)
  • I used torn pieces of brown paper to stamp the labels and glued them over some hessian-look ribbon
