What Make Seasoning Salt at Home?
I’ve been waiting for this question! Once you make this seasoning salt at home, you will know precisely why it’s so superior to store-bought seasoning. But, if you haven’t made it yet, let me convince you! The taste of homemade seasoning is obviously the first reason why I make it at home. I can add and take away ingredients that I love or don’t care for to make this seasoning salt fit EXACTLY what I need. Whether I want it spicy, salty, or just more flavorful, I can make that happen when I mix up the ingredients on my own!
The next reason comes in as a close second when you realize just how convenient making seasonings at home is! I would say the majority of the time, I already have the spices and seasonings to mix to make my own seasonings. This makes it so easy to mix things up and not have to run to the store for that one thing. Seriously. Once you taste how good this seasoning salt is and how easy it is to make, you will never buy it at the store again! Sprinkle this over some french fries and you will be sold!
