How to Make Gullah Seasoning

How to Make Gullah Seasoning

Gullah is a cultural region in South Carolina, and I’m currently interesting in learning about the regional cuisine.  I’ve got a few recipes in the works, and I thought it was best to put the seasoning blend up now so when I share the recipes, it’s easy to find.  Some of the spices are hard to find in the store, but I found them all on Amazon.  To make the Gullah seasoning, sift all the ingredients together into a large bowl, and whisk them to blend.  Store in an airtight container.  This blend will keep for at least 6 months, and it makes about 1 ¾ cups. 

The flavor of the seasoning blend is spicy and piquant with a little bit of smokiness –to compare, I think it tastes kind of similar to Creole seasoning.
