Emeril's Original Essence

I love the color of paprika.


Here's the deal ...
I'd like to share the family rub, I really would.
But ...
It's my father's secret recipe.
It's gold.
So is my father.
It ain't happenin. 

Instead ...
I offer you a classic.
You can't go wrong with  a spice rub by the big E.
Play around with it, you might like what you mix.
And bare with me if I throw in a few extra pictures on here.
It's a special post to me.
I photographed my father making this. 

Emeril's Original Essence



8 tablespoons paprika
3 tablespoons cayenne
5 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
6 tablespoons salt
2 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 1/2 tablespoons dried thyme


Mix all ingredients together.
Store in an airtight container for up to three months.




Home always makes me feel a little nostalgic.
I wish I lived closer.

You completed some good points there. I did a search on the theme and found the majority of persons will have the same opinion with your blog.

Why wouldnt you want to share your fathers favorite rub recipe with other like-minded humans?

im sure he would have felt honoured that other people are using his creation and gaining pleasure.

imo, you should do your father some justice and post the recipe sometime in the future.

because my father asked me not to.

the biggest clue i gave, or could give is that you play with the spices on your own, you've been given a base line ...
