Birthday Gift - Exotic Spice Rack

I've decided to give a gift to a friend. This might be a good idea for a gift from one cook to another - Provide a set of special spice packets and labled spice containers. For each spice you're giving include a recipe using this spice/herb. The more exotic the spice/herb, the cooler the gift... as long as you're not using pituary gland of civet.

Here's the recipe I included with a packet of celery seed:
Oven fried Chicken
3 c. cornflakes crushed in a ziploc bag
1 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp celery seed
1 tbsp thyme
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

2 c. buttermilk
1 fryer chicken, cut into 8 pieces

In a large ziploc bag place the chicken and pour buttermilk. Allow to sit in the refrigerator overnight.

Next day: Set the oven at 375 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients to make the breading. Remove the chicken pieces from the ziploc bag and coat each piece well with the breading. Place the chicken pieces on a foil covered baking pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes and turn each piece over. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
