At my house we LOVE Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. Actually, we just call it “red salt” which is what I grew up calling it.
My dear MIL was surprised the first time she saw it on my table since she only uses it in cooking. (I converted DH after we met-well, me and the corn on the cob that they sell at some fairs slathered in butter and liberally salted with seasoned salt) I use it frequently while cooking, but we also use it as table salt. It is particularly great on pizza, veggies and corn on the cob.
A couple of months ago I ran out. I hadn’t planned on going to the store until the next week and didn’t want to run out for just that. I know me, I would wind up buying something else I didn’t need. So I searched one of my favorite recipe web sites: Recipezaar and found a copycat recipe. Since I am a spice a holic (I probably will NEVER use all the spices I have in my cupboard) I had everything I needed on hand except for the tumeric, which I was able to purchase at a local store that carries some bulk food and spices. It turned out great. I’m sure it is cheaper in the long run although I didn’t do an actual price comparison.
Here is the recipe. If you want to see the original you can see it at Recipezaar (#17501 by Lennie)
Copycat Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Makes 1 spice bottle. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
I quadrupled the recipe so I could put it in my large Lawry’s jar. I also saw that in the reviews on Recipezaar someone said that they left out the cornstarch and used splenda instead to make it lower carb. Personally, I think that the cornstarch is probably important to keep it from clumping.
