Fajita Seasoning Blend Recipe

I like to make a batch and store it in my spice cabinet whenever the craving hits. It’s a simple recipe, so it’s easy to prep and have on hand! Just make sure that you label it so you know what spice it is.

How do I know when homemade seasoning is no longer fresh?

First, trust your senses; if the seasoning has lost its vibrant color or aromatic potency, it may have expired. Fresh seasonings typically have a strong, distinct smell and vivid color.

Second, check for any changes in texture; clumping or excessive moisture can be signs of spoilage. Lastly, consider the time frame; most homemade seasonings retain their peak flavor for about six months to a year when stored in a cool, dark place.

By paying attention to these factors, you can ensure your seasonings are always at their freshest and most flavorful.

Can I make a double batch of homemade spices?

Yes, you can certainly make a double batch of homemade spices. When doubling the recipe, use twice the amount of each ingredient to maintain the same flavor profile.

However, mixing the spices thoroughly is crucial to ensure an even distribution of flavors. Store the extra batch in an airtight container to preserve freshness and potency.

Making a double batch can save you time in the future and ensure you always have your favorite spice blend on hand for your culinary creations.
