Taco Seasoning:

1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup onion powder
1/8 cup ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon sea salt
Put ingredients into a jar and shake.

Dry Onion Soup Mix:
2/3 cup dried, minced onion
3 teaspoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Mix all ingredients in a jar, then give the jar a good shake. I’d recommend shaking the jar to mix the ingredients well before each use.
Use 4 tablespoons in a recipe in place of 1 packet of onion soup mix. Store this in a dry, cool place.

Ranch:
5 tablespoons dried minced onions
7 teaspoons parsley flakes
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix together and store in an air tight container.
For dressing: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk or sour cream.
For dip: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 2 cups sour cream.
Mix up a few hours before serving, so the flavors all blend.

Facts on Oxygen Absorbers and How They Work - Country Cooking Recipes

Follow Me on Pinterest


What are Oxygen Absorbers and how do they work?
Oxygen absorbers use a base metal (iron) and a basic chemical reaction (oxidation) to remove and sequester oxygen inside the little packet.  If you open a packet up you will see a dark gray or black substance, which is just powdered iron.  As a packet is used up, the material inside the packet will become a little hard and crunchy, and will turn a reddish brown.
How Many Oxygen Absorbers Should I use?
A general rule of thumb is to use 300-500cc of oxygen absorber per gallon of food you are storing.
A little chart on how that works out:
1 Quart Bag - 100cc oxygen absorber
1 Gallon Bag - 1-2 300cc oxygen absorbers
2 Gallon Bag - 2-500cc oxygen absorbers or 1-1000cc oxygen absorber
5 Gallon Bag - 1-2 2000cc oxygen absorbers or 2-3 1000cc oxygen absorbers
