Β I’ve really gotten into making my own seasoning mixes lately. I posted this homemade taco seasoning recipe last week and I have a couple more for you. Starting off with this homemade ranch seasoning mix. I like making my own because it tastes 1000x better when you do! You can actually taste the spices & flavor instead of that stale-generic-salty-packet taste.

These homemade mixes are easy to make, and cheap because they use common spices that you probably already have. I always buy my spices in bulk at Costco or Sam’s Club. They last forever and I can make lots & lots of batches of homemade mixes. And my favorite part is that you know exactly what is in it. No more crazy named things that you can’t even pronounce!

    July 29, 2016 at 12:42 pm How much liquid do you use to make the dressing? I see where it says 2T is one packet but no further instructions. Thanks!

      July 29, 2016 at 2:18 pm Jen, it varies for what kind of dressing you want. This recipe was just for the ranch seasoning mix (the kind you get in the packet). Generally, I think the packets say to mix with 1 cup sour cream for a veggie dip? Not entirely sure what you're trying to make, but this recipe just replaces the packet of ranch seasoning mix either in a recipe or in a dressing recipe. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    June 1, 2017 at 9:31 pm My dry buttermilk says store in fridge after opening. Do you keep this whole thing in the fridge then?

      June 2, 2017 at 10:35 pm Good point! I've never realized that. I have made this several times and have always kept it in the spice cupboard. It does tend to get dry and clumpy if you leave it in there too long without using. Maybe that's the reason. Keeping it in the fridge would not hurt it so if you feel better about doing that, it should be just fine :)

      July 24, 2017 at 2:34 pm This recipe is just for the ranch seasoning mix. When a recipe calls for a packet of ranch seasoning mix (just the dry stuff) you can use this homemade one instead of a store bought packet. Not sure what you mean by it won't thicken.... if you're looking for ranch dressing i have that recipe I'll link to in a little bit.
