My Favorite Spice Blend
1/4 cup black peppercorns
1/4 cup coarse sea salt
2 tablespoons crushed chili peppers
3 tablespoons coarse garlic powder or flakes
2 tablespoons dried basil
1. Blend all ingredients well and spoon into pepper mill.
2. Store any remaining spice blend in a tightly covered glass jar.
I use this blend at the table. Many of the winter vegetable soup recipes I have submitted to VegWeb are improved by grinding a bit of this blend over the hot dish at the table.
Source of recipe: This blend of spices was inspired by finding an adjustable peppermill.
