Flavored salt – Making your own

admin, January 30, 2014

We did a post about making flavored sugar a while back (Chocolate Flavored Sugar).  This time we’ll do a flavored salt.  There’s an unlimited number of ways you can combine spices so just take this as a guideline.   Even with commercial versions of spice rubs and flavored salts, we at pinoycookery haven’t agreed on a single one that everyone likes.  It’s each to his or her  own taste.  You can use this for cooking – spreading on meat and fish or you can use it as you would normal salt – as a seasoning for cooked food (e.g. french fries).

*** Now for all those who don’t like high sodium / salty food, don’t worry.  We will be exploring no-salt equivalents in the future.  :-)

Step 2-A: The better option would be to use a salt or pepper shaker.  that way your flavored salt, or seasoned salt as it is also called, is always ready to use.
