Spicy Seasoned Salt Recipe

Combine 1/4 teaspoon dill weed, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon curry powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, 2 teaspoons dry mustard, 2 teaspoons paprika, and I cup coarse salt and mix well. Place in an airtight container, seal tightly,. and store for three to six months in a cool place (so the flavors can blend together). Use in your own holiday recipes . . . or pour into individual gift salt shakers, attach "From the Kitchen of Your Name" labels, and give to your friends.

SPECIAL NOTE: Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be grown in your own garden for an added personal touch. And, if you go that far into the herb business, why not go just a little farther . . . and start a few mini-herb gardens early enough in the year so you'll have some to give as Christmas presents? Place seeds or cuttings in all-purpose soil in three inch pots, set in a sunny window in a tray that contains water and small rocks (the water's level should be below — never touching — the bottoms of the pots), and keep the soil moist. Chives — which can be used to flavor all kinds of soups, salads, and other dishes — grow from seeds very quickly and make especially nice gifts.
