HOMEMADE SPICE SEASONING MIXES

0

by: Jeannie Maristela






I make my own spice mixtures at home not only because I am a bit frugal and I find those commercial spice packets to be packed with sodium and preservatives, but also because my storecupboard is never short of various spices which my father and brother often brings home from the Middle-East. And through many years of having been familiar with spices, I invented and replicated a few seasoning mixes on my own. I love this Garlic and Paprika spice rub, because it imparts a glorious reddish-brown color to the chicken/turkey as it cooks. And each bit of this seasoning becomes more flavourful as it browns and caramelizes specially on the crisping skin of the bird. This homemade Taco (or Mexican Spice Mix) Seasoning mix was the result of my love of Mexican food. I always make tacos and fajitas 3 times a month. I find the sweet smokiness of the cumin, the earthy-minty nuance of oregano and the vibrant spiciness and terracotta red color of chili powder and paprika are what makes this seasoning mix very distinctively Mexican in taste.
