Flavored Salts

I posted this in another thread, but it was headed a bit off topic, so I thought I'd start a new thread in the right forum and see where it takes us. I love using various seasoning salts when cooking, as well as putting some of them on the table when serving so guests can season to their own taste. Some of those that I use either for cooking or for finishing are mentioned below.

I love seasoning salts - kill two birds with one shake. I have the standard like garlic and onion salts, but I have some others too.

I have a couple from Savory Spice Shop: the first is called County Clare Seasoning Salt that is fabulous on vegetables. Another one from Savory is Cantanzaro Herbs Seasoning Salt which is great on a lot of things from eggs to chicken to steak. (they also have the Cantanzaro herbs without salt)

Then I have Ghost Pepper Salt from High Plains Spice Shop which is very spicy. Also had their Habeņero salt but used that up and haven't needed to replace until the GP salt gets low.

I don't use a lot of seasoned salts. I stay away from garlic and onion salts. I prefer garlic and onion powders. I can season with salt separately.

I have Penzeys seasoned salt and the smoked version.

I have several seasoning blends that do not include salt.

We have to have garlic salt in the cupboard. My wife prefers spaghetti with just butter and garlic salt. I think if it wasn't so undietetic that she could live on that and nothing else.

I have lots of seasoned salts but the one I use the most has been around as long as I can remember. I must have it on my eggs, always.

I also have Penzey's 4/S Seasoning Salt. And I made the citrus salt and Szechuan pepper salt from this site: http://steamykitchen.com/125-making-...red-salts.html

They're really good. I need to remember to use the Szechuan salt next time I make Asian cucumber salad. It would probably be good on a stir-fry, too.

I'm not a fan of "seasoned" salts, but think that different pure salts have distinct, subtle flavors of their own.

GG's link worked fine on my iPad, Kay, however, I couldn't get your link to work for more than 2 seconds, enough time to see it was Lawery's, then it popped off.

That's weird. It worked for me just now

You could do a Google search for Steamy Kitchen Making Your Own Flavored Salts, if you want.

Hmmm...strange, both links worked fine for me.

I have the good ol' Lawry's and like it, I don't seem to use it much, though. My daughter and her family also love it on their eggs. I've been wanting to try the Penzey's 4S, but totally forgot to put it on my last order. Which should be delivered today, by the way.

Usually I try to buy the salt free blends and add my own salt as needed.
