How to Store All Purpose Seasoning

Store your homemade all-purpose seasoning in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. It will stay fresh for up to 6 months.

Additional Tips

  • Substitutions: Feel free to substitute any of the dried herbs with fresh ones. Just remember that the flavor of fresh herbs is more potent, so you might need to adjust the quantities.
  • Customize: Adjust the ratios to suit your taste preferences. Add more red pepper flakes for heat or more garlic powder for a stronger garlic flavor.
  • Troubleshooting: If the seasoning clumps, give it a good shake or stir before use. Adding a few grains of uncooked rice to the container can help absorb moisture and prevent clumping.
