Offered with Stuck-Pot rice, but can be an independent snack, or as salad component, or a delightful accent on a plate of pasta..
The Alabama seasoning, not necessarily available in many parts of the world, is a mix of dry mustard, sweet paprika, celery seed, bay leaf, black and red pepper, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, salt, mace and ginger. You can choose to make some and have it for many culinary experiments or just use some ingredients to taste.. I am very happy making this one and storing it – just as i do, for example, with creole seasoning – absolutely wonderful and not at all banal flavouring.
