Make Your Own Spice Mixes
Making spice mixes is easy! All you have to do is measure and mix. Here are some of benefits of making your own spice mixes.
- You can make international spice mixes that you might not find on the shelf at your local supermarket. Can't find a Thai, Persian, or African spice blend? Make your own!
- You can adjust the mix to suit your personal taste. Don't like cloves? Leave them out. Want a bit more heat? Add a little cayenne pepper.
- Making your own spice mix is usually less expensive than buying it online.
- If you need it tonight, you can make it today! No waiting for an online order to arrive.
Ingredients You'll Need
These are all dried herbs and ground spices that you probably have in your spice rack. (And if you don't, you should!) If you're missing one or two of them, don't stress. It won't taste quite the same, but it will still be good!
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- black pepper
- dill weed (Why is dill the only herb that we call a 'weed'? Let's show it some respect, people!)
Make Some Greek Seasoning!
Mix the Ingredients
Measure everything into a small bowl and mix well.
Use What Your Need and Store the Rest
This recipe makes about an ounce of mix, which just fits in a standard spice jar. So save those empty jars when you run out of something!
Wash the bottle well and put a new label on it with the name of your homemade mix, so you don't accidentally use Ras El Hanout instead of paprika in your paprikash. Because then it would be Ras El Haoush. Which might be really good! We did say you could use this mix almost anywhere!

I had everything on hand that's needed for this mix, and it was fun to put together. (And I agree, the dried dill from my summer herb garden is not a weed!) I used some for Greek meatballs, and look forward to adding this blend of flavors to orher recipes, now that I have it on hand. I might never have bought a pre-made Greek seasoning mix off the shelf, so this is a great addition to my pantry.
Making your own spice mixes is a great way to add to your flavor arsenal. You can make as much as you need for a single recipe. You can adjust them to your own taste. Debbie hates cloves, so we always have to make our own curry mixes. And you open up a new world of international mixes from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
