Making your own spice mixes is fun.
They can be customized to suit your family’s palate. (Don’t like fennel? Leave it out.) They don’t contain any yucky MSG, maltodextrin, anti-caking agents, or other stuff you’d prefer not be in your family’s food. And they save you time. If you mix them up all at once, then you have them ready when you need them!
Today I’m sharing 4 with you. And don’t forget my taco seasoning too.
At the bottom, you’ll actually find baking powder, which is not technically a spice mix. But, store-bought baking powder contains aluminum, which is not good for us. Making your own is so simple, so why not? It’s also pretty cheap.
- 2 tbsp. basil
- 1 tbsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. thyme
- 1 tsp. parsley
- 1 tsp. rosemary
- 2 tsp. fennel seed
- 1 tbsp. onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric
- 2 tsp. sage
- 2 tsp. sea salt
- 3 tbsp. sucanat
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 3 tbsp. cream of tartar
- 1.5 tbsp. baking soda
For every spice, combine ingredients in a 4-oz. glass jar. Shake to combine. Store in your pantry and use as needed to season food!
