From the Kitchen - Outside the Nest

Onion Soup Mix
I don't often prepare a recipe that calls for the dry onion soup mix, but when I need it, I never have it.
Or, if I have a package of it, it's old, it's crusty, it smells funny.
Now I make my own, and it's super simple.

I start with a tad of sugar,

then a healthy measure of dried minced onion.

Next comes the beef flavoring, which is the dry beef broth and soup base that comes in a jar.

Onion powder,

celery seed,

and finally, a sprinkle of dried minced garlic.

Stir it all together, pressing out any lumps of the beef base,

scoop it into a jar,

mark the jar.
I'm sharing a full recipe, along with a pared-down version.
This is a really easy way to prepare what's needed, and not have to buy a whole box.
Coming real soon, a recipe that uses this tasty concoction.
Is it ever good.
Stay tuned.
Happy Saturday
