Hints from Heloise

Dear Heloise: I read a recipe you printed for a seasoning that included celery seeds, paprika and, I believe, oregano and pepper, and I know there was something else. You could use it on almost anything. I mixed up a good-size container, but I’d like to make some more. Sure hope you can help me. – Joanne in Winter Haven, Fla.

I think you are referring to the Heloise’s No-Salt Substitute recipe. Here’s what you will need:

5 teaspoons onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon white pepper (can use black)

1/2 teaspoon celery seeds

Mix all of the listed ingredients and store in a tightly covered, labeled container in a cool, dry place. Put in a saltshaker for table use. Enjoy. – Heloise
