Chef Notes:
Make-Ahead: You can make this recipe up to several months ahead of time.
How to Store: Cover and keep in a cool dark place for up to 6 months.
I prefer to use granules instead of powder when it comes to the onion and garlic ingredients. It tastes better and has a lot more flavor.
A great way to store the seasoning blend is by keeping it in a mason jar with an airtight lid.
