Homemade Cajun Seasoning

  1 rater(s)

To buy at the store or to make at home? This is the age-old debate, and it gets even more trivial when you decide on spice blends. On the one hand, store bought spice blends are convenient and ready to go. On the other hand, store bought seasoning blends tend to be rich in sodium, which is why homemade seasoning blends are much better. Such is the case for cajun seasoning.

While many of you may be tempted to reach for the convenient, pre-mixed options on the grocery shelf, the truth is that homemade cajun spice blend is a game-changer, especially in regards to flavor and health. You see, the average cajun seasoning contains nearly 170 milligrams (mg) of sodium per servings, which is 1/4 teaspoon. Most recipes call for way more than that! Using one teaspoon will rack up 680 mg of sodium, which is quite a lot when you consider that health experts recommend you not exceed 2,300 mg of sodium per day.

You can make this homemade cajun seasoning in small or large batches. This allows you to control the freshness and potency of each blend. That means that your spice retains its flavor and aroma for longer. Say goodbye to clumpy, stale, old spice blends that sit in your spice cabinet for months. Welcome this spicy blend into your life. Just be careful not to go overboard with it, as it can have a dominant flavor.
