Heritage Restaurant’s Spice Blends

The Heritage Restaurant

The Heritage Restaurant

This is for Mary Ann and Sue, who both remember this Cincinnati restaurant fondly. When her kids were little, Mary Ann made a spread for bread using the restaurant’s salt free blend.

As I mentioned to Mary Ann, we all have great memories of the Heritage. That’s where I met my husband, Frank and his family, who all worked there when I took a part time job at the restaurant as “hat check girl”.  Many years ago….

BTW you can buy most of these dried herbs inexpensively, in bulk, at Jungle Jims. I buy mine at the Eastgate store. The Indian section has a myriad of bulk, dried herbs.

Janet and her husband, Howard, owned the restaurant and Janet developed many popular herb and spice blends. She graciously shared these recipes several years ago, and I keep them in a special file just for you!

Heritage Restaurant’s Cajun Seasoning

Store this in the refrigerator, because the paprika and cayenne have high oil content, and keep better in the refrigerator, or for long term storage, in the freezer.   This makes three cups.

Mix together:

3/4 cup sweet paprika

1/2 cup salt (I like sea salt)

1/4 cup ea: ground white and black pepper

1/4 cup powdered cayenne pepper

1/4 cup granulated garlic (not powdered)

1/2 cup dry thyme

1/4 cup dry oregano

Heritage Retaurant’s BBQ shrimp seasoning

As always, use dried herbs

1-1/2 tablespoons or less to taste, freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed

3 bay leaves, crushed

1 teaspoon Heritage Cajun seasoning

1/2 teaspoon ea: cayenne pepper, oregano and basil

1 tabelspoon hot Hungarian paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt
