So one night I was cooking and ran out of seasoned salt. I use it in many recipes, one of my kids favorites is seasoned salt pork chops. So what was I to do? I made homemade seasoned salt recipe. It was either have cranky, fussy kids who didn't want to eat because the pork chops are ‘ewwy yucky' (their words not mine!) or make my own. I don't know about you, but I'd make anything to avoid cranky kids…..
I have noticed that the more things we make, the more we save. Why buy an expensive bottle of seasoned salt when I can make it from spices I already have in my cabinet? Plus I find I can always adjust it and make a better version. Like my seven things I stopped buying and started making post. I also started making my own hickory bbq sauce and using it make my own slow cooker bbq beans. All of which have saved me money over the long run, plus it's healthier because I know exactly what goes into the items I make, no preservatives needed.
