This blend has a spicier flavor than the preceding one; enjoy the extra kick. As you combine the ingredients, crumble or chop them to the consistency that you want. Store extras in tightly covered jars in a dark place to preserve their flavor for as long as possible. For use at the table, keep the blends in salt shakers with large holes; blends made with whole spices may be kept in pepper mills.
