Homemade Fall Spice Blends
I originally began making my own blends because I was cheap and didn’t want to spend the money on a spice blend when I knew I already had all the ingredients at home. What I learned was that I absolutely loved making my own because I could control the quality of the ingredients. I could also customize the blends to fit my family’s needs.
I’m 23 years into marriage and homemaking and I still make most of our own blends. I just make double or triple batches and store them in mason jars with a cute label.
It’s great to make your own homemade spice blends because you can control the amount of salt in your mixes. Most commercial blends have more salt than you’d. It’s healthier to have salt-free seasonings because each individual can control the level of salt on their food based on their dietary needs.
Sure, there are lots of seasonings without salt. However, most commercial blends have way too much salt, so it’s better to make your own homemade spice blends where you can control the level of salt.
