3 Ways For Kids To Get Savvy With Seasoning

3 Ways For Kids To Get Savvy With Seasoning

There are so many fun ways for you and your kids to play with flavor.  Experimenting with spices inspires young tastebuds and doesn’t require a lot of time or money.  All you need is an empty spice jar!  Don’t have one?  Make one yourself by taking an empty glass mason jar, covering it with tinfoil secured around the opening with a rubber band, and poking medium sized holes in the foil with a pencil.  Spices may settle and clump slightly.  Just give the mix a quick shake each time you use it to refresh.

3 super simple spice-tactic ways to add some zing to your next dish!

1. Popcorn Perfection 
Parmesan is great for kids to have nearby during dinner to sprinkle on and sweeten up their veggies.  It also makes for a yummy popcorn topper.  Want your popcorn to have little more spice than sweet?  Fill your jar with 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of pepper and shake away!

2. Tasty Taco Night
Mix 2 tablespoons chili powder with 1 tablespoon cumin, add to your jar and mix it up.  This combo keeps taco meat from tasting boring and bland.

3. Spectacular Cinnamon
Fill your jar with cinnamon! This timeless favorite is a tasty topping for a number of dishes including french toast, toast with butter and oatmeal. Cinnamon has a strong flavor, so remind your little chefs to sprinkle on a little at a time and taste it before adding more.
