Homemade Herb and Spice Blends

Accent Seasoning can be made without the MSG, which many believe to be harmful. This is a Cajun version, but you could adjust the heat for your own liking.




Mix all ingredients in a blender except the salt, do not breath in the dust. Add the salt last and blend until it is a uniform color.

Some people are sensitive to MSG and may have a reaction to it. If you are concerned, search the internet for monosodium glutamate and you will get the latest information.

Use this seasoning on all your vegetables, whether fresh or canned. It really gives them some extra special flavor. I use 1 tsp. per quart of veggies.

I always have garlic powder, onion powder and lemon pepper on my fried potatoes. It occurred to me today to mix them up in equal parts and put them in their own shaker. This is pretty much what I do with cinnamon and nutmeg for my Chai tea, so why not!

Make your own chili seasoning and save money! You can use an empty Parmesan cheese container to store it in. The container has a slot so you can measure the seasoning accurately. It also has holes in it if you want to shake a little more to make your chili spicy.

I very rarely use celery salt, so I do not buy it. I use sea salt, but real salt is fine also.

Garlic salt and onion salt is nothing more than mixing some garlic powder or onion powder with salt. Its much cheaper to make it yourself, instead of buying small jars in the grocery store. Other similar spices can also be made.

It's a Dilly

Step 1
Yes, but it's a different recipe than The McCormick's version. Engage says it made the original. I wrote to Mc Cormick's asking for the ingredients; maybe I'll get an answer. We used to use their version all the time and so far, I've seen a few different recipes that contain more or less.
