  • Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Make sure they are thoroughly blended. Store the mixture in an airtight container and use as required.



  • Keep it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. This will help to prevent moisture, heat, and light from affecting the quality and flavor of the seasoning.
  • You can use a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid, a plastic container with a snap-on lid, or a resealable plastic bag to store blackening seasoning. Make sure the container is clean and dry before adding the seasoning.
  • Label the container with the name of the seasoning and the date you made it, so you can keep track of how long it's been stored. Homemade blackening seasoning can last for up to six months if stored properly.
  • Avoid storing blackening seasoning near the stove, oven, or other heat sources, as the heat can cause the spices to lose their potency and flavor. Additionally, keep the seasoning away from direct sunlight or other sources of light, as this can cause the spices to degrade over time.
