Very nice! I made this when I realised I'd ran out of Cajun mix and won't be going back to buying it pre-made again, this was much better and had a wonderful aroma. I made more than I needed and because the moisture in the brown sugar is the only reason I could see it not keeping for longer I'm drying the rest out in front of a heater to keep in a jar.
