Make Your Own Seasoning Mix Recipes

A versatile seasoning mix that's easy to make, garlic herb seasoning mix | Frugal Family Home

Do you buy seasoning mixes in those little foil packages? If you do, would you like to have some recipes that you can make yourself to replace those?

I really like to make my own seasoning mixes. I can purchase the herbs and spices really inexpensively at Winco Foods. So the cost of each mix is really low.

If you don’t have a Winco Foods near you, I hear the Dollar Store is another good place to get inexpensive spices. Not to mention that you know all the ingredients that go into each mix.

I will purchase the foil packages occasionally when I can get them really cheap or for free with coupons but when I can’t I make my own. But by making my own I can avoid fillers and other things I don’t want in my mix.

My favorite seasoning mix to make is herb and garlic. I love it because it is really versatile. I can use it on roasted vegetables. But it’s also equally great on chicken too.

Or I even use it in homemade gravy to pump up the flavor. It’s super easy to make, just mix up the spices and store in an airtight container until ready to use.

I try to keep my batches of spice mix fairly small, so they don’t draw moisture and go bad. But if you can seal them in a canning jar you might want to double or triple the recipe below.

  1. The Herb and Garlic Mix sounds yummy! I’ll have to try that! So far I’ve only consistently mixed up my own taco seasoning but would like to expand on that. We don’t use a lot of seasoning packets in our recipes usually, but for those times that they’re called for I would much prefer a DIY option!!!

  2. Shelly,
    Have you tried to make Spice Island Garden Seasoning? I ran across a recipe calling for this spice, I love to dry my own spices, seems to taste better.
    A trick I learned drying ginger, do not peel, slice it with a mandolin for even slices, dry it in a dehydrator, 150 deg. for 2 to 3 hours, check after 2. Grind it, (coffee grinder) then run it through a sieve.

    1. Dave, I have not tried making Spice Island Garden Seasoning but now I’m going to have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing your trick for drying ginger. I’ll give it a try.
