Seasoned Salt Recipe

We used to use seasoned salt quite a bit.
That was when we were less conscious of what was in our food.
We eat real, scratch food
and overall have a pretty healthy diet.
My friend Staci, over at Life at Cobble Hill Farm,
is always wowing me with her homemade fixin's.
I'd like to have an arsenal of spice mixes to add to our pantry.
After all, homemade is best!

With just a handful of ingredients,
we were on our way.
Most of these are probably in most folks' cupboards.

With all those colors, you just know it has to be good!

Shaken, not stirred.

Next time I'll probably double the recipe
to fill up our lovely glass jar.
Jars are fabulous for storing all of your homemade mixes!

One down, many more to go.
We'll be adding this little gem
to our family recipe book.
Isn't it wonderful to make things 
that you feel good about serving your family?
Every ingredient is recognizable.

This seasoned salt will come in handy this summer
for all kinds of recipes.
Grilled meats or fish, potato or egg salad,
roasted veggies or even rubbed over corn on the cob,
would all be made better by a little jar of spice.

  1. Daisy, I don't really use allot of salt in my food preparation. I mostly use Mrs. Dash salt free seasonings. The other seasonings would be garlic and onions. Love those two things to mix into the food preparation especially fresh but some times the powder, not the salt, will do. I have discovered that tasty food is indeed all about the seasonings but still I'm not one to make cooking too complicated. Living in Nebraska has directed by meal preparations around meat, potatoes, and corn. Yeah, not too creative but satisfying. The last few years, red meat has become more of a flavoring than just chowing down on a big chunk of meat. I do like the different cultural styles of food but just don't really fix any at home. I have friends that take care of those food delights.

    Have a great seasoned salt day.

  2. I try to make a lot of my seasonings from things out of my pantry. Especially because most seasonings out there are so full of salt. This looks like a great seasoning for chops or steaks. I love Staci's blog!

    1. It's very satisfying to create your own for pennies!

  3. Hubby LOVES seasoned salt and I'll be adding this one to my rack. Simple and cheap--right up my alley!
    Hope you're having a good weekend. I'm still planting like a crazy woman...but the deck/porch/and garage are still loaded.
    Might be time to stick a few out by the road with a "FREE" sign........

    1. Someone's gonna get some mighty good stuff! Enjoy your planting! Wish I could help you! ;0)
