Title: Seasoned Salt
Post by: Merry Bee on February 28, 2008, 08:47:01 PM
(Makes about 42 ounces )
26 ounce container of salt
1/4 oz Red pepper (tweak to taste) **
1 1/2 oz Black pepper
3 oz Accent (optional)
3 oz Chili Powder
2 1/2 oz Onion Powder
2 oz Celery Salt
1 oz Garlic Powder
1/8 oz Cumin (to taste)
2 oz Paprika ( I like more of this and less of the red pepper)
Use in soup, stew, meat, vegetables, cottage cheese, pinto beans, eggs, and so on.
never buy seasoned salt because it is mostly salt, a cheap item, with
very little seasoning. But, I use this mix nearly every time I cook.
One of these days I will decrease the salt, and learn to make a recipe
(one I like) that is very low sodium
**Instead of the
red pepper, or in addition to it, you may mix a few drops of Tabasco
Sauce into 1/4 Cup of Salt, stir well, and heat in oven to 225 degrees
and leave it over until dry. Then mix it into the recipe.
I usually go to the dollar store and buy the herbs and spices, and just
toss the whole container of it in, if it is close to the right amount
for recipe. I don't like Cumin to stand out in recipes, so I put less
of it in. I put the whole recipe in a clamp top jar, and fill salt
shakers out of it. I fill the empty spice containers with the seasoned
salt mix, and give it away to family members.
