On occasion I like to visit the local meat market just to brows around and get ideas. A couple months ago I saw a spice mix that was black pepper and garlic. I love pepper and garlic and use both on almost everything I cook, but I never thought of combining the two and use as a single spice. Instead of paying $14 for the container I was holding in my hand, and because I already had the ingredients at home, I left and made my own pepper/garlic spice mix I have named parlic. It took a few trials to get the right portion of pepper and garlic but here is the final result. No matter the quantity of the mix, 1 cup or 10 cups, the ratio should be about the same depending on your own taste – Combine 1/3 garlic and 2/3 pepper in a container and let it set for a couple weeks taking it out to give a good shake now and then. I prefer to keep my parlic in a glass bottle. I have a parlic mix that has some cayenne pepper added. Should be good for wings or to add to a sauce. However you mix and store it, we have yet another option available to us.
