I love making my own seasonings and rubs. This list of 50 Easy Homemade Seasonings will inspire you and add so much flavor to your favorite dishes!
Making your own seasonings and spice rubs is a great way to add extra flavor to all of your recipes and dishes. When you make your own seasonings, you have more control over what goes in them, including the amount of salt. Most store bought seasoning mixes contain added preservatives and unknown substances, so I thought it would be nice to share a list of homemade seasonings that you can make yourself for all kinds of recipes and meats. Hopefully, these seasonings will help you come up with some new ways to cook some of your favorite meals and also give you some new ideas for family meals and grilling too!
I've been making my own seasoning for chicken and pork for the past few years, and it is sooo much better than anything I've ever bought in the stores. We use it on grilled chicken, chicken kabobs, oven roasted chicken, ribs, pork chops and for our smoked pork butts too. You can find my Homemade Dry Rub for Chicken and Pork HERE! You can find the instructions for smoking ribs, grilling a spatchcock (open faced) chicken and smoking the best pork butt for pulled pork at the end of this post...after all of the other homemade seasonings you can make yourself!

Thanks for sharing a link to my Sloppy Joe seasoning mix. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
I just copied all of your seasonings- especially the Salt without salt- I know they have that in the grocery stores but they also have 'other' things in them that I do not want to eat. All the seasonings you show are delicious, I thank you for compiling the list for me.

THANK YOU! This is the gold! I have a new found passion of making my own spice mixes and this was an amazing foundation for some inspiration!
my hubby will absolutely love this. I bought 2 books but he didn't like them. Thanks

Sharon Williamson says
I love making my own seasonings thank you for all the recipe for them.
Thank you for these wonderful recipes.
Do you have any for boullion (chicken/beef/vegetable)?
No, but that's a great idea! I'll add it to my list. Right now, I typically use Better Than Bullion, which can be found at most grocery stores...it's really great!
Victoria L McMackin says
I make my own stocks from scratch and from this, you can also make your boullion. I reduce my stock (which is a fuller flavor broth) until it is quite thick, like a syrup in texture. I pour it onto parchment paper (silicone sheets work wonderfully for this) and then dehydrate in my Excalibur. When dry, you will have a sheet of dried stock that you can pulse in a blender to get your boullion. :) Hope this helps!

That Jamaican Jerk Seasoning was great. It was tame to my tongue, but then I eat habanero and ghost peppers. My better half said she enjoyed it quite well as it is, and we have Jamaican relatives who make jerk. So Thanks for the link. I'm encouraged to try more.
