What Are The Best Spices For Making Your Own Seasonings and Spice Blends?
There’s no right or wrong brand. I will first say, buy what you can afford. However, not all spices are created equal as you tend to get what you pay for. Currently I use Morton & Bassett (not sponsored) because I find their spices to be top notch in texture, color and flavor. I love and respect what their company stands for not only with charitable work but also quality control. With that said some other wonderful brands I’ve used over the years are Simple Organic, Frontier Co-op and Penzys.
Start by placing the fennel seeds into a mortar and use the pestle to smash them in to bits.
Alternatively, you could put them in a half-sealed plastic baggie and use a mallet to crush them or use a spice grinder.
Next measure in the crushed rosemary, dried basil, thyme, marjoram, onion powder, garlic powder and crushed fennel seeds.
Stir to combine.
Store the Tuscan seasoning blend in an airtight container or small jar and in a cool dry place for 1 to 2 years.
