Spices and flavorings


I recently decided to never buy a spice or spice mix that I can make myself.

My first attempt was seasoning salt, because we recently ran out and I was sick of hearing the kids ask me if I remembered to buy more. (Can you guess the answer? Hahaha) So off I went in search of a recipe. Of course anytime lately it seemsĀ  I’ll find a recipe and adapt it to fit what I have in the cupboards or to suit our personal tastes.

It was better than any seasoning salt I’ve bought at the store.

Here’s my adapted recipe

1 TBSP table or sea salt

1Tbsp white sugar

1/4 tsp paprika

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp tumeric

You can also add 1/8 tsp onion powder.


Mix it all together in a bowl or shaker, and use whenever you want to. Store in an airtight container.

We like it on home baked oven fries, eggs, hash browns, slices of cucumber and so much more!
