ℹ️ FAQ & Info
What does blackened seasoning taste like?
Blackened seasoning tastes lightly spicy and herbaceous. The depth of flavor really compliments mild proteins or anything sweet.
What recipes use blackened seasoning?
Just coat your food with a little olive or avocado oil and rub a generous amount of blackened seasoning all over. Cook over medium-high heat to get a nice crust from the seasoning, and enjoy!
How do I store homemade spice blends?
Store the blackened seasoning in an airtight container (like a spice jar) at room temperature. The spice blend will keep for a long time (like 3 years!) unless any ingredient expires first, but for best taste, enjoy it within 3-4 months.
