This instructable was inspired by a phone call I received from my son. He was leaving a spice store http://savoryspiceshop.com/ and was so excited to share with me; the wonderful spices they sold there. I had ordered some vanilla beans from Madagascar and paid quite a lot for them and they were dry and hard when they arrived. He reminded me how much I had paid for them. They were cheap at this place. He said the cumin smelled so good and they had plump vanilla beans that you could smell from the sealed bottles. I have been saving some lime bottles to make salt and pepper shakers out of and when he called I thought filling the bottles with unique salt and pepper blends would be a great gift to give someone. Let's get started.
