Emeril’s Essence 

Driving home today,  just letting my mind wonder, somewhat,  I started to think of Emeril’s Essence. I remember him telling his viewers of his TV show (don’t remember which one.  Its the one with him in the kitchen cooking by himself.) what he puts in his “Essence”.  He would use it as he very first ingredient/spice in almost EVERYTHING.  And I remember always asking myself, before I stumbled upon that particular show, what the hell was in his “Essence”?  

Loe and Behold I realized what I use myself for the basic seasonings in my  home coming is some of the same seasonings as his Essence.  So I know this must be good.  

Use it to make your own essence.  You can alter the amounts according to your taste.  Personally, I use less salt and I do not include the Thyme or Oregano.  

Emeril’s Essence Ingredients
8 tablespoons paprika3 tablespoons cayenne5 tablespoons black pepper, freshly ground6 tablespoons garlic powder3 tablespoons onion powder6 tablespoons salt2 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano2 1/2 tablespoons dried thymeDirections

Combine all spices in a bowl and mix well.  can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
