Paula Deen just calls it House Seasoning .I call it perfect. I have a copy of her cookbook The Lady and Sons: Savannah Country Cookbook .
I saw this stuff called House Seasoning and had no idea what it was.
Until I flipped to the back of the book,page 160 to be exact and to this day I use all the helpful hints she has listed on those few back pages.
Folks now sometimes I make recipes that involve a few.... extra items,oh... maybe say quite a few extra items and some recipes can be a little labor intensive.And thats ok sometimes,but the recipe for Paula's House Seasoning has the shortest ingredient list I've ever used in my kitchen.
Yep just three and that's all: salt,black pepper and gahhhlic powder.I meant garlic powder,my southern accent got stuck on the keyboard.
I use this fantastic,three-ingredient mix for general seasoning.I use it in marinades,sauces and salad dressings.It goes with soups,dry rubs and heck even sprinkled over a baked potato.The garlic powder really enhances any recipe that already has garlic in it. Salt and pepper are just the best of friends and really I can't list one by itself without listing the other.Now I know that a big ol' batch of brownies won't call for salt and pepper,but savory dishes are a perfect canvas for this perfect seasoning mix.Break out the funnel and whisk!
Recycle that strawberry jam jar.Go you.
