Greek Seasoning Mix

I checked out Cavenders Green Seasoning which is what I THINK I have that Marcine gave me in a canning jar.  This is the ingredient list on their website:  Ingredients: Salt, black pepper, corn starch, garlic, monosodium glutamate, oregano, flavor base seasoning (Hydrolyzed corn soy protein, sugar, onion powder, spice extracts), parsley and five other spices.
This mix is missing anything sweet which might be needed.


Homemade “Cavender’s Greek” Seasoning

AUTHOR SAYS:  This is my version of the ever popular Cavender’s Greek Seasoning. My brother, a professional chef before he retired, just LOVES his Cavender’s, in salad dressings, on fish and chicken, and even on vegetables. My version is real close to the popular commercial product, but it has a more pronounced garlic/onion flavor and has no salt in it (I’m very sodium sensitive). I think you’ll like my mock up of this flavorful blend. This spice blend is suitable for all phases of Atkins, other Ketogenic diets and Primal-Paleo lifestyles as well.

INGREDIENTS:

1 T. dill seed

1 T. black peppercorns

1 T. dried basil

1 T. dried oregano leaves

1 tsp. dried thyme

1 T. granulated garlic

1 T. granulated onion

1 T. dried parsley flakes

1 T. dried rosemary

2 tsp. dried marjoram leaves

DIRECTIONS: Mix ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a grinder (or your blender). This may take several batches if using a dedicated coffee grinder like I use. You want the blend fairly fine. Store in an airtight jar in a dark cabinet with all your other spices.
