10 gourmet seasoned salts and spice mixes to make at home

When it comes to spicing up our usual repertoire of homemade meals, it's sometimes hard to find original, creative ideas.

Our seasoned salts and spice mixes can easily be made at home, and will infuse your kitchen with a renewed sense of flavor and fragrance. 

The best way to store them is in a small, sealable glass jar. This way the mixes stay fresh as long as possible. 

 

For the seasoned salts you can use table salt, Kosher salt, sea salt or fleur de sel, and then pair them with fresh herbs or spices.  In order to achieve the perfect balance of flavors, you should use 1/3 salt to 2/3 fresh or dried herbs, and about 1/4 cup salt for 3 tablespoons of spices. Of course this is just a suggestion, so feel free to adapt the proportions to your personal preferences. 

 

For the spice mixes, it's better to use whole spices that you toast yourself, instead of powdered ones, because they have so much more flavor. 

 

The best thing about these ideas is that you can switch them up as much as you like! The variations and flavor combinations are endless, as are the jars that you store them in. Why not make your own, homemade spice mixes and give them to your friends and family as a gourmet gift?
