Frozen Seasoning Blend (for your freezer OAMC)

Sharing is caring!

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 Frozen Seasoning Blend recipe will improve the flavor of so many of your dishes, without adding anything harsh. Yum!

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
  • Celery
  • Garlic
  • Mushrooms
  • Green Onion
  • White Onion
  • Carrots

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! 🙂

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. 🙂

This is a great idea! I chop onions and freeze them flat in a ziploc bag. When needed I just break off a portion and add them to the recipe. Now, with your seasoning blend, no more wasted peppers and another time saver. Thanks so much!
