If you're like me, you probably have a shelf or drawer full of herbs and spices. This is one way that I make good use of some of them. It's a lightly seasoned flour, despite the numerous ingredients, perfect for coating fried chicken, pork chops and country fried steak, and for making the gravy when you're finished frying. It's also good to use, in place of plain flour, for making batters for fried mushrooms etc...
