I stand corrected. You are absolutely right UB. I just looked at the ones they sent me as freebies and salt is first. I could have sworn I read in one of their catalogs about how they do not do that, but I guess I didn't. Thanks for setting me straight.

GB... yes, love HEAT!!! Thanks for the reccommendations! :)

UB... I know exactly what you are saying and did not even think about that until you brought it up. I like GB's suggestions and I may lean towards that. Thanks for mentioning that. Something I need to be more aware of, could save myself a few $$$!

GG... I love your idea for use of the greek seasoning, but since I don't use it much in my cooking, I would rather lean towards something that I would use a bit more frequently. Not that I have much doubt, but I want to try things I know I will use first, then branch out from there. Thanks for the suggestion... I do have greek seasoning on hand, but it is old and has never been opened! HA!

Bigjim... I have started making me own as well. I just wanted to try something from Penzey's since I have heard soooo many good things about them and the quality of their products.

Why not buy the Penzy spices and herbs, Google recipes, and mix your own? While I have never done this, this thread has given me the idea. Guests are always asking me what is in my dishes, and it would be fun to give them as gifts. Also, you could add or subtract from the mixes and make them distinctly your own.

One word.....cost. One of their mixes could contain 10 or 12 different spices or more. You could buy a little container for 3 or 4 bucks or you could buy all the individual spices you would need and end up spending 30 or 40 bucks.

I also recommend the smoked Spanish paprika and the chipotle powder. I have used their seasoned salt called 4S and it's very good.

I have also tried their Turkish and Italian blends and like them.

As an aside, I can't recommend their recipes. Only one has turned into something I continue to make. (Of course, I had to make some improvements.)

Try the smoked 4S next time. It is really good as well.

I've heard about them for years but, never bought any..Then, I needed to cut down on salt, so I went shopping..They have many many spices and seasoning that are without salt..But, the thing that surprised and delighted me was the freshness of the smell and flavors..It was as if I'd just ground everything myself..The flavor they imparted was lovely.

I have used Penzys spices for years. At Christmas time I all ways make up a batch of my Italian seasoning and give it to my klin as well as severl other blends they all like
since I have moved from Colorado to Des Moines I discoverd a Penzys store here and there spices are so fresh. I did buy there 4/s seasoning and did not like it at all ug
but the rest of there line is just super. I am old fashioned I try to make everthing from scratch including mustard and various blend for my use and penzys all ways gets my business
