Note: I recommend using as many whole ingredients as you can for these seasoning recipes, but sometimes you may not have them all available. If you don't have them all to hand, it's fine to use quality pre-ground powders. Just reduce the amounts you use by half and stir in with any other powders.

Getting the Most Out of Your Seasoning Recipes...

I use a lot of whole spices in the above and recommend toasting them. This is really simple and only takes a few minutes! See my grinding page for "step-by-step" tips and photos. (Link opens in new window)

There are a few pre-ground powders worth always having in your rack: turmeric, onion, ginger, garlic and paprika. Plus a couple of minor ones that you only use occasionally.

But Why Not Just Buy Some?

Make your own and you have control of the ingredients! You don't have to rely on what the manufacturer deems fit to include...

...Not keen on a certain ingredient? Leave it out, or swap with another. On a low salt diet? Leave out the salt, or reduce the amount you use.

Like your powders really fiery? Add an extra teaspoon of chili or cayenne. Likewise reduce the amount if you fancy it a bit milder.

Nothing is set in stone, so feel free to experiment!
