Do you make your own spice/herb blends or sauces/dips?

I make an all purpose spice blend and an herb blend.

Ms. Mofet's All Purpose Seasoning Blend

Granulated Garlic powder
Onion powder
Goya Adobo seasoning (I use the one with pepper or the one with lemon)
Accent (or MSG) - optional
Sea Salt
Hungarian Sweet Paprika
Ground peppercorns (4 or 5 corn variety blend)
Hungarian Hot Paprika
Ground red pepper flakes
Cayenne

NOTE: Last 4 ingredients determine the heat, adjust to your personal heat preference.

Ms. Mofet's Herb and Spice Blend for a grinder

Peppercorn blend (telecherry, Malabar, white, green, pink peppercorns, allspice)
Sea salt (crystals)
Garlic (Dry Minced )
Onion (Dry Flakes )
Thyme (Dry Leaves)
Rosemary (Dry Leaves)
Red pepper flakes

Place in a jar with a lid and shake to mix well. Then place in a grinder.

I don't have any proprietary blend of my own, but often I'll mix together my own herbs and spices using a recipe I've found - mostly online. For me it's cheaper, and I like the flexibility to omit individual herbs/spices that I don't enjoy (looking at you, cumin ) and to adjust the dominance of each herb/spice to suit our own flavor likings. It may not be authentic to the recipe, but it's what we enjoy - and isn't that what the end result is all about?

I just bought a few new spices that I can't wait to play with.
They are:
Apple Cider vinegar powder
Sriracha Powder
Ancho Chile Powder
Chili Lime Seasoning

Many thanks for the idea of adding dehydrated onion and granulated garlic to the spice grinder!!! A nice idea for a salad grinder, maybe a twist or two over the morning eggs!

Like CG I mix up a blend of various things as needed to make a dip, salad dressing, chili, etc...

I think a signature blend is great if you do a great deal of cooking, it could save time and help to maintain a consistent result. Also a great gift for the kids when they head out the door and want to duplicate the meals they remember from home.

You're welcome Aunt Bea.

Just one note it is Dry Minced Garlic and Dry Flakes of Onion not granulated or powder.

I use Emeril's Essence Creole recipe and always have it ready in the fridge.
I make a double batch and put it into a shaker container.
I use it very often.

My Emeril's home blend is in a shaker bottle too. Good stuff.

MsM, your blends sound really good!

Thank you DL.

I can't wait to add some of my new spices to the blend.

I found a helpful item a couple years ago. I ordered two, one for my kosher salt, and the other to make up spice blends on the fly when I'm cooking. Mixing up one batch of seasonings at a time works out well for me, and then I just wash it out till next time and make something different.
