Measurement note: The measurements given are by volume, and not by weight. If you are concerned about accuracy, don’t be. This recipe doesn’t require the precision that baking demands. If you live outside the U.S. and don’t use our same teaspoons, think of seasoning recipe like a ratio. Use the same set of volume containers for measuring all the ingredients and your blend will be properly balanced.
