poultry essentials: spicy chicken dust

Recipe by

This is an excellent poultry spice for everything from wings to the whole dang bird. My favorite way to use the spice is to dust it on the chicken (usually skin on), and bake at 350f (175c); along with some veggies, until brown and crispy… Just the right amount of heat… Just the right amount of sweet. Served this on chicken thighs last evening and it was a total hit. Think I will try it on chicken wings tomorrow. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Storage of homemade condiments and spices Because homemade spices and condiments do not contain any preservatives, it is important to store them properly. Non-reactive (glass) containers with tight-fitting lids are a must. If I am making a dry spice, I love to use old spice bottles that I have run through the dishwasher. If I am doing homemade sauces, I love using Weck jars. They are all glass, come in all sizes and shapes, and have excellent leakproof lids. If you shop online, you can go to Amazon, and type in “Weck Jars” and you will find a ton of them. Dry spices should be kept in a cool space, away from sunlight (spice cabinet), and sauces, in most cases, should be stored in the fridge. If properly stored, this saucspicee should last 6 – 8 months.
