Well-Seasoned: Homemade Seasoned Salt

I had an idea to make my own seasoned salt, only a simpler version of what you might find pre-made at the store. I didn't want to use a flotilla of ingredients, either, but just a few well-chosen ones that would make an intensely savory, all-purpose seasoning. I scoured recipes online, paying close attention to the main ingredients in each, as well as the proportions used. I narrowed my selections down, and created this version:

Seasoned Salt Recipe

Seasoned Salt

1 part kosher salt
1/2 part celery seed
1/4 part sweet paprika
1/4 part dried thyme

Stir all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container or glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.

Notes: This really IS intensely savory, and pairs well with naturally sweet foods, like root vegetables and pork. Of course, it's great with chicken and fish, too! As with my other mixes, this makes a great host/hostess gift on its own, or as part of a gift basket with other foodie items. If you like other flavors in your seasoned salt, use this as a base and create your own personalized blend by adding your favorite herbs and spices.
