Cajun Spice Blend

Cajun Spice Blend created by Stardustannie

I was looking for Cajun seasoning for my New Year's Day black eyed peas. This is based on Julie Sahni's recipe in "Savoring Spices and Herbs" with a few alterations. Everyone loved the peas, btw. NOTES: I ground only 1/2 the herbs/spices for textural effect. I usually grind up a whole nutmeg & store in a jar so there's always an amount of fresh nutmeg on hand. "Cook" time = grate & mix time.

    Made this spice blend to add to my cabinet today...WOW! It definitely packs a flavorful punch!!! When my spice jar is empty I will definitely make this again. I did not add the nutmeg though, because I do not care for its flavor, and I can detect the smallest amount of it. I used about a tsp. of this blend to top my ground beef and rice I had for lunch. I look forward to trying it on chicken this week. Made and reviewed for the 38th Aus/NZ Recipe Swap.

    Loads of flavor! I did cut back on the cayenne(so we could handle the heat) and used this on Recipe#45391. Yum! Thanks! Made for the Australian Recipe Swap!

    Great tasting cajun blend. I followed the recipe as written but had to omit the dried ancho chile powder as I couldn't find that ingredient over here. Thanks for posting.
