What would you use the seasoning Beau Monde with?

In our March 2009 In Basket section, Clara Johnson shared a recipe for a dip she made during the holidays that included Beau Monde, a seasoning sold under the Spice Islands label. Clara couldn’t find the seasoning in stores so she asked us where she could purchase it. In response to her question our staff posted an online exclusive recipe: Beau Monde Seasoning. Clara’s letter didn’t appear on our website so here it is for anyone who would like to use Beau Monde seasoning in a dip.

Beau Monde

Q: During the holidays this year, I couldn’t help but think back to Christmases past, and what I enjoyed making for that wonderful time of year. I never failed to make dip that my family loved, but it’s not the same anymore, as I cannot find the herb (Beau Monde) that I always used in the dip. I call it an herb, but I’m not sure what it is. I wonder if someone at The Herb Companion could help me find it again. It has a wonderful taste. Last year, near Christmas, I looked for it again and a lady walked up and asked what I was looking for. When I told her she said, “I can just taste that wonderful stuff,” but she said she could not find it either. I had gotten it for several years at an herb store in Evansville, Indiana, near where I lived. They said all at once they couldn’t get it anymore. I was devastated, but I hope you can help me. This recipe is where I used it, as well as in cheese balls.

Wonderful Dip

• 1/3 cup mayonnaise
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 1 tablespoon Beau Monde
• 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
• 1 tablespoon onion
• 1 teaspoon dill weed

1. Mix all ingredients together and serve.

A: Beau Monde is a seasoning that was sold under the Spice Islands label. We haven’t seen it on shelves lately, but you can buy it at www.SpiceIslands.com. Visit our website, www.HerbCompanion.com, for an easy recipe. –Eds.
