Just wanted to bump this thread with a report. I've heard so much good about Penzey's Fox Point seasoning, and also about Lake Shore Drive seasoning from The Spice House. The Spice house version has salt/shallots/garlic/onion/chives/gr.green peppercorns/scallions in that order. Penzey's has salt, freeze-dried shallots, chives, garlic, onion and green peppercorns.(no scallions)
CG brought up the cost point of the two products so I opted for the much more economical Spice House version. I've used it for a while now, and it's become my favorite seasoned salt.
I use it on just about everything!!

Glad to hear that you like it, Kayelle! I know when I run out I will be replacing it in a timely manner. Whether it's through Spice House or Penzeys, it all depends on which one has the best deal on the table.

I got my first jar of Fox Point as a coupon freebie. I thought that was a pretty good deal

Drat. I recently got a Penzey's order, and totally forgot to get Fox Point seasoning.

Insult to injury, I got the free jar of air dried shallots, Mural of Flavor, and free shipping, but the next day after I placed my Penzey's order, they upped the ante by offering 2 free jars of pie spice along with the other freebies. Grrr. Should have waited.

Oh well, I don't make pies very often.

Speaking of free, I just got an email from Savory for a free one ounce sample of their California Citrus rub, so when taking them up on the offer, I also ordered an additional $21 worth of flavors I'm low on or that I've been wanting to try. In December I got my free birthday gift, so that's a couple of ounces of freebies in the last 3 months. I expect that when the order arrives, there will be the usual surprise sample of something too.

Joyce has many of spices and seasonings. You must have of garlic, cardamon, paprika, blended pepper, onion bits, tumeric, sage, oregano, parsley, cilantro, bay leaves, and much others.



This is her spice and seasoning wall which Justin built for her.

I can't find any curry at the 2 stores I go to. I guess I have to drive 10 miles away or order off Amazon or eBay.

Any other good spices I should have on hand?
you need to always have spices that can create your own masala blends. once you blend it will only last up to 4-6 months, sometimes 8 depending on the quality and how well u keep it sealed.
