“Shire Seasoning”

(a.k.a. Savory Seasoning)

  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns (all black or a mix of colors)
  • 1 tablespoon dry parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powdershireseasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dry thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dry marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon dry sage
  • ½ teaspoon dry rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed

Combine the salt and peppercorns in a blender or a small food processor.  Pulse until peppercorns are mostly broken; this will take about a minute.  Add the remaining ingredients and pulse another 30 seconds or so.  Keep in a tightly covered container in your pantry.  Shake or stir before using.  Makes about 1/3 cup and retains pungency for about three months.

 

BTW—If you’re not interested in making this mix, check out my Etsy shop, Elegant Sufficiencies, where you can order some. I’ll make you a batch: Savory Seasoning in a Jar or (the cheaper version) Savory Seasoning in a Ziploc Bag.

    • This is based on Morton’s Nature’s Seasons seasoning mix, available in grocery stores. Sugar is listed in the ingredients and I simply made up my own interpretation of the mix. I bet you could leave it out if you wanted to and it would still probably taste okay. Let me know!
