In a small, Northern Vermont Kitchen, we sate our appetites with homemade meals and a love of local ingredients.

Making Homemade Seasoned Salt in a Pinch

Make your own seasoned salt

The other night I was making fried chicken, and when I was about the pull the chicken out of the marinade I realized that we were out of a crucial ingredient – seasoned salt. We were hungry and it was about 7 p.m., so I didn’t feel like running to the grocery store. I racked my brain and thought of what was in seasoned salt, and I realized we had everything in the kitchen to make my own. The only thing we didn’t have was dried parsley. But, I had a bunch of flat-leaf parsley in the freezer. I turned the oven on it’s lowest setting, cut off some parsley, dried it on paper towels, baked it for ½ an hour and Voilà! We had dried parsley for homemade seasoned salt.

    Have gone thru 2 batches of your seasoned salt and was bragging it up to my brother. Of course he wanted the recipe and of course I could not find my copy and of course I could not remember the name of your site, so you can imagine how happy I was of course(after a couple of hours of looking) to find you. Thanks. P.S. I’ve pinned it.
