**NOTE FROM KELLI: This is my 5th most popular recipe on this site! Be sure to go see the rest of the top ten most popular recipes at Southern mom Cooks!
I make my own seasoning blend and use it in the majority of my recipes. I do different things each time depending on what is on sale, what someone gives us, what we pick up at the local market, etc. This time (when I was actually taking pictures) I used:
- Purple Onion
- Yellow Onion
- Red Bell pepper
- Yellow Bell pepper
- Orange Bell pepper
I have also used the above and added any of the following:
- Green Bell pepper
- Green Onion
- White Onion
It is actually a pretty simple process that I have perfected over the years. I also need to tell you the story of seasoning blend and our Exchange Student from back in 2006! So, be sure to scroll on down to see that! 🙂
How to make homemade seasoning blend!
Step One: Gather the fresh ingredients that you want in your seasoning blend.
Step Two: Chop everything up and put it in a big bowl, then mix well
Step Three: Put scoops full of mix into lightly sprayed muffin pans, fill each “muffin” 3/4 of the way with water, and stick in the freezer for a couple hour **see picture at the top of this post**
Step Four: Pop the muffin shaped things out and stick them in a freezer bag to use the next time you need some flavor in your cooking!
Now the funny seasoning blend story:
I had chopped everything and put it in the fridge because I was also cooking supper. I planned to get it separated that night, but was tired by the time supper, baths, etc were done. So, I just set the bowl in the fridge and decided to separate it all out the next day. Our exchange student got up in the middle of the night and wanted a snack. He saw that bowl of “salad” in the firdge and fixed himself a full bowl of it! Poor thing, he got really sick from it! HA HA! It cured him, though! He never ate in the middle of the night again. 🙂
