    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping. This combination is used in many of Donald Gazzaniga's recipes in "The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium" books (both the original book and the "Light Meals" book). There are 3 other similar recipes posted on Zaar at this time, but the proportions of spices are different. This cannot substitute for salt when it is needed as a leavening agent or preservative, but it can add a "kicker" of taste. Store in a tight container and in a dark, cool place. Normal salt has 2350 mg of sodium per teaspoon while this has only 2.76 mg of sodium per teaspoon.

      I used this in some eggs for lunch and it was great. I am looking forward to using it more often! I cook low sodium whenever possible so this will be a great addition to my spice rack! Made for VEG*N swap. NOTE: Making a second batch of this stuff. . .love it. I cut the recipe in half and it fits comfortably (with some room to spare) in a 3 oz spice jar.

      I admit I haven't tried this on a wide variety of foods, but I have tried it on eggs and turkey burgers and it certainly tastes okay but it doesn't have any kind of pizzazz that would make me say "Wow," and that's what I really need to satisfy my now salt-free tastebuds. On the other hand, Don's low-sodium soy sauce substitute, also posted on this site, is pretty darn good. This is pretty good but I won't make it again when this batch runs out.

      This works very well. I did not use the cloves, but added the dill weed. I also put in a little extra paprika because I like the coloring. So far, I have used this while making fried potatoes, eggs, chicken, even sprinkled over popcorn! It makes a great table spice in place of the salt. I just used the empty onion powder container to store it on the shelf with my other spices. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Tag - Thanks! :)
