Homemade Beau Monde Seasoning

I ran across a brisket recipe not too long ago that called for Beau Monde seasoning. It wasn't in my pantry and I didn't see it at my corner grocery. Time for a little research.

My old pal Google helped me discover that's a spice mix used on everything from salads and vegetables to beef and pork. I also found a recipe and made my own....from things I DID have in my pantry. I've found myself reaching for it a lot. And I'll post the brisket recipe I used it in soon.)

Beau Monde Seasoning
Makes a little more than 1/2 cup.

1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon crushed bay leaf
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground mace
1 teaspoon celery seed
2 tablespoons white pepper

Mix all ingredients together and store in a tightly-lidded container.
