Is all-purpose seasoning spicy?
Since you use a bit of crushed red peppers, you will find this mixture has a little bit of spice. If you prefer a more mellow flavor, leave the pepper flakes out.
You will still get tons of flavor, and it won’t have a warm tone of heat to it, as it would with the red pepper flakes.

What is the best all-purpose seasoning?
Personally, this all-purpose seasoning here is one of my absolute favorites to buy. I also love the Season salt seasoning mix you can buy in the store. Full of herbs and spices that work together to season a variety of foods.
But, lately, I have been making a lot of this spice blend and then putting it in a jar and keeping it in my spice cabinet within hands reach of the stove.
Is all-purpose seasoning the same as allspice?
Allspice and all-purpose seasoning are not the same things. Allspice is made from dried berries and is most generally used in baking, making drinks in the kitchen.
This all-purpose seasoning means you can use it for all things in the kitchen when cooking.

Ways to use all-purpose seasoning
- Sprinkle on french fries
- Seasoning burgers for grilling
- Top chicken for any recipe or even a casserole
- Use on pork or a nice roast
- Sprinkle on roasted or steamed vegetables
- Season breading to deep fry or air fry foods
Watching salt intake?
If you are watching your salt intake, you can omit the salt for a salt-free seasoning to use in your kitchen. It will taste just as good and still do awesome at seasoning recipes.
How to store house seasoning
Pour your seasoning mixture into a glass sealed jar or even plastic. Place in a dry place, I tend to stick in my spice cabinet. Then when you are ready to use it, shake it and enjoy.
The spice blend can last up to a year before going bad. The biggest thing is to watch all the expiration dates of the ingredients used.
If one is set to expire soon, it will become your expiration date for the spice mixture.
