Tips for the Best DIY Seasoning Salt


Adjust to Taste: Feel free to tweak the ingredients based on your preferences. If you like a bit more heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper. Prefer a sweeter blend? Increase the sugar slightly.

Experiment with Variations: Don’t be afraid to experiment with additional herbs and spices. Adding a bit of smoked paprika or chipotle powder can give your blend a bit of smokiness.

Share the Love: Homemade seasoned salt makes a great gift! Package it in a cute jar with a handwritten label and give it to friends and family for holidays or special occasions.

DIY Spice Blends: Once you see how easy and delicious homemade seasoning blends can be, try making other blends like taco seasoning, Italian seasoning, or a BBQ rub.

Healthy Alternatives: Making your own seasoned salt allows you to control the ingredients, which means no preservatives or additives. It’s a healthier alternative to store-bought versions.

Airtight Container: Store your seasoning salt in an airtight container or a spice jar to maintain its potency. Mason jars or repurposed spice jars work perfectly.

It will stay fresh for about 6 months if your spices are fresh.
