Homemade Cajun Spice Seasoning

With so many spice mixes out there, it might seem redundant to make your own, but it is a lot cheaper and you will know exactly what’s in it.  Additionally, you can control the salt content.
 
You will need a basic coffee grinder, but it’s minimal investment to buy two. One for coffee beans and one for spices. Not kidding, I’ve had my Krups grinders for 20 years. 
 
Feel free to adjust ingredients and quantity to suit your taste. This will keep well for many months in the pantry. 
 
1 1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Smoked Paprika 
1 tsp Oregano 
1 tsp Thyme
1 Bay Leaf
1 tsp Black Peppercorns 
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper 
1 whole Clove, optional
 
Add all ingredients into a coffee/spice grinder. Grind until a fine powder. Use as desired. Makes a wonderful marinade with olive oil for broiling most anything.
