A recipe - A multipurpose shake/rub

Bone Dust BBQ Spice
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup chili powder
3 tablespoons salt (which I usually leave out)
2 tablespoons ground coriander
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons curry powder
2 tablespoons hot mustard powder
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

Mix together ingredients. Store in airtight container in a cool, dry place away from heat and light. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
So, this is a mix I found in a newpaper, ages ago. I'm talking probably while I was in my teens! I use it for everything. We put it on meat that we grill, I add it to rice and we pretty much use it as most households would use a seasoning salt. My MIL now uses it all the time and we seem to make a batch and share it so I only make it half as often as I used to. This lasts us about three months and then we are looking to mix up more. I buy the ingredients at the bulk food place, mix it in a large plastic jar and then transfer it to a large shaker top jar that sits on the first shelf, right out front in my spice cupboard.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
