Southern Spice Blend

southern spice blend

This is my recipe for my everything spice blend.  It is very similar to Emeril’s essence.  That is where I got the idea.  I changed the recipe just a little to suit my own tastes.  I use this spice always with my fried chicken, some other fried dishes, and roasts.  I use it when I grill too. I think it is a very good all purpose spice. It is very flavorful and works great with all deep  fried dishes.  I always make alot of this, because we go through so much of it.
