This is my very own all purpose seasoning blend that I use on a daily basis. Will store on the counter up to 2 months. Will keep in the freezer for up to 12 months. Use anyplace you would use regular salt and pepper. Feel free to experiment with your favorite dried herbs and spices. I also keep smaller batches (just split a recipe) on the counter with 1 strip of dried lemon and another with 1 strip of dried lime in it. Simply peel a strip of the zest and leave it on the counter overnight to dehydrate it. I have yet another with dried mint in it.
