🥫 Storage instructions
- Store it in an airtight container: Storing your French fry seasoning in an airtight container is the best way to ensure that it remains fresh. Mason jars, spice containers, or any other type of lidded container works well.
- Keep it away from heat and light: Light and heat can degrade the potency of your seasoning blend. Store the container in a cool, dark place like a pantry or cupboard.
Don’t forget to label and date the jar: Labeling and dating the jar will help you keep track of when you made it. It will last for months but will lose flavor after a while. And a lot of homemade seasonings look similar!
