If there's one thing that's guaranteed to speed up your dinner prep AND make your meal more favorable, this seasoning mix is it. After picking up this secret cooking weapon from my Guyanese nanny, Mamzie, last fall, now I rarely make a savory dish without reaching for my jar of ground garlic, onions, scallions, thyme, and (if you like) hot peppers. It's led me to many "dinner on the table" PR's.
Grinding a batch takes about 20 minutes upfront and saves multiples of that down the road. Make one batch and you'll realize why many Carribean homes alway have a jar of this in the refrigerator. --Bec
