Why make your own homemade seasoning blends?

Making your own seasoning blends is as easy as grabbing your spices, measuring them out, and mixing them up!

While a store-bought packet of seasoning mix might cost you a few dollars, you can easily whip up a batch for less than that in 5 minutes or less, which is less time than it would take you to run to the store!

I like to buy my seasonings in bulk to save money as well and I almost always have the spices needed in my pantry to handle almost any combination or seasoning blend I want to make.

Homemade seasoning blends are much healthier than their store-bought counterparts! Have you ever looked at the list of ingredients on one of those little packets? A few things often included are thiamine, mononitrate, riboflavin, and my personal favorite – flavorings. Not things I particularly think taste good nor are they things I want to eat on a regular basis. You’ll find none of those hard-to-pronounce ingredients in your own homemade seasoning blends!

Tips for Making Your Own Seasoning Blends

Here are a few tips for making your own seasoning blends:

Use mason jars to store your spice blends in and keep them in a cool, dark place. They will last up to 10 months if stored properly! I love these tiny mason jars for storing my homemade seasoning blends.

Experiment with different combinations and flavors! For example, if the blend calls for cayenne or red pepper flakes, feel free to omit them to make a milder spice blend or increase for a little more heat!
