Dina, I am with you. I am not intending to do jar sized portions for everyone. That'd be silly. What if they hate it and it sits there or worse gets dumped.
I bet I'll do about 3 tablespoons per Seal a Meal thingie and call it a day

I was thinking basically just enough for one time making whatever it is. That's about the right amount and then they'll have the recipe and can make more if they like it and if they don't, none of us would have wasted a bunch of our spices.

Okay, once again I have come in on the tail end of something good! Blast this knee! Anyway, I read this entire thread and found it very interesting and exciting but because I am late AND have the extra postage challenge of being in Canada, I will gladly sit this round out and if you do another PLEASE let me know. I can get my friend in New York to send the postage to whoever and then get the money to her!

Have fun everyone, I will keep checking in to see how it is going!

I don't know about others, but I don't think one more is a problem. You would be paying your own postage so the cost is up to you, it wouldn't burden deelady.

Thanks, Callisto, but you have your 10 and I am not sure I would be up to getting it all together AND figuring out the postage thing. I have a few dips and rubs in my repetoire and will be ready if there is a round two.

Of course I would be all for LPBeier joining us, but I can understand if she is not up for it after all that she has been enduring! But hopefully we will be able to have a second one, at least one similar!

As for serving size I only had in mind enough for a family size dinner, what ever that might be. I would imagine it would depend on what exactly you are making. Yes I completely agree the thought of any going to waste would be frustrating, but we also want to make sure they have enough for their whole meal and not just a "pork chop's" worth!
So 5-7 T worth was just a number I just put out there, the main idea is enough for a meal....

Wow, this thread has really taken off. Good for you all! Sounds like a great idea. I don't really have a good enough rub to share or I'd be in. They are just a little of this, some more of that.

Now, to sit back and watch the news when all these ziploc baggies with herbs in them hit the mail system
I know. Maybe if you wrap the baggies in coffee and tin foil

Just jesting. It does sound like a cool idea.

Yes, but we're talking about doing something honest here. You know there's going to be a knock at somebody's door
Or one of those pink slips... package must be picked up at PO
