The cost of premixed spices is often exorbitant. I recently stocked up on spices at World Market when I was in Fort Worth. They have fantastic prices on spices in bags. Since I already have bottles and jars for all of them, all I need is refill and then I don’t have to pay for or waste the packaging. Good all around deal.
I just came across the following website for spices and seasonings, replicating many popular ones such as Shake and Bake and Old Bay. Bon Appetite!
