Spice Rub

A friend gave me a recipe for a spice rub a couple of years ago.  I really enjoyed the combination of flavors, but it was a little sweet for me.  So, I cut the sugar in half, and I’ve been happily rubbing everything from briskets to pork chops to potatoes with it.  I’ve even been known to sprinkle some in my quiche or over my garlic bread.  It’s pretty tasty and can be used as a substitute for seasoning salt–even thought it’s not nearly as salty.

1/4 c. salt
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/8 c. paprika
2 T. chili powder
2 T. onion powder
2 T. garlic powder
1 T. black pepper
1 T. cumin
1 t. ginger

Mix well and store in airtight container.

Makes a great gift!
