Absolutely heavenly seasoning mix! I use it on everything. Amazing flavor!
- Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
I have loved using this mix for years, it has great flavor. I have added onion powder to it (like a scant 1/4 cup) because my famly likes the flavor of onions.
I ended up making FOUR TIMES the amount of this recipe just now. Thank goodness I like it! I think I'll be giving some of this away this weekend. A note to self and other chefs: pay close attention to what you are doing while making things like this. I ended up adding the garlic I measured out into my container of pepper rather than the container I was using to store this recipe. UGH! I used the Penzey's Flaked Kosher Salt but only had McCormick Pepper and Garlic Powder. I can't wait to try it with all Penzey's spices!
I have a very old bottle from Paula Deens House Seasoning that I purchased many years ago before she got as famous as she is now (the bottle has a picture of her face on it, and was distributed by Quality Food Brands inc, Monroe Michigan ). I used it all up, but I kept the bottle. The ingredients listed in order are: "sea salt, granulated garlic, black pepper, granulated onion, ground cumin, and other spices". I have used the recipe listed on this site and included equal amounts of garlic powder and onion powder. In my experience the cumin should be limited to just a big table spoon full or it will dominate the seasoning too much. This is very close to the taste of what I remember from the commercial spice mix.
