Tips

  • The dried green spices will want to separate from the rest of the ingredients. That’s ok, just give it a good stir before using it each time.
  • Adjust to your own taste. That’s the best thing about making your own. Want more chives? Throw them in there! Want a little less garlic powder, no problem, adjust it down a bit. In other words, adjust it to meet your perfect preferences.
  • Avoid storing where there is a lot of moisture or humidity. Because there are no preservatives, the ranch seasoning is vulnerable to clumping if exposed to moisture.
  • Want to add a little “tang” to the mix? Use powdered buttermilk in place of powdered milk.
