Cook’s Illustrated Jojo Spice Blend

Cook’s published this Jojo Spice Blend for their wonderful Jojos. If you’re not familiar, they’re wonderful, battered, deep-fried potato wedges – and unfortunately, they aren’t on this blog. But the Jojo Spice blend is!

I’ve found it’s just as good on my oven-fries, Bomb Baked Potato Wedges and my Crispy Oven Roasted Chick Peas. I’ve also sprinkled it on chicken breasts, my Stupid Simple Sweet Potato Fries and whatever else strikes my fancy.

This mixture has a good bit of a kick to it!
