Keto Seasoning

Keto Spices are not easy to find. Store-bought all-purpose seasonings in most cases contain additives such as MSG and more, and it is challenging to find something that fits our needs.

This is one of the reasons I have started making my aromatic seasoning blends for various needs. It’s super easy, most of the spices at home anyway, and I know exactly what I put inside. 

Our Taco Seasoning is so great that I have it on top of my shell to use at all times. Everything Bagel Seasoning is another favorite blend of mine. Topped up on salads, dips, or sandwiches, the flavors intensify immediately.

And when I decided to make my sausages, I had to prepare the seasoning for sausage the exact way I wanted. Of course, sharing it with you makes me even happier as I do not want to keep anything secret.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKING SAUSAGE SEASONING

First Step: Ingredients needed for sausage seasoning

Prepare all of the spices and herbs you will use to mix the sausage seasoning. 

If you can, use all of the herbs from your garden, which you can quickly dry in a  few days naturally spread on newspapers or kitchen tissues. I have done that with Dill, and you see what a lovely color it stayed.

Second Step: Start layering.

If you plan to prepare this spice mix as a gift for your loved ones, pick the colors carefully for the bottle to look as vibrant as possible. I have tried to layer the seeds with the color scheme I had in mind. 

But in general, it doesn’t matter what spices go first if you are going to mix them all. 

I have started with Fennel, smoked paprika, salt, and parsley.

You can even layer them like a rainbow, starting with salt and working towards the darkest spice, which is Dill in our case.

  • Dry – before mixing all of the spices, be sure that all of them are fully dry to avoid the whole blend going bad
  • Gift Wrap – If you plan to give this blend as a present, choose the colors layering carefully for the bottle to look as vibrant as possible. You can even layer them like a rainbow, starting with salt and working towards the darkest spice, which is Dill in our case.
