Dill Pickle Seasoning


  • 1/4 cup dry buttermilk Saco dry buttermilk is available in the baking aisle, at Walmart or order it online
  • 1 tablespoon dry dill
  • 1 tablespoon citric acid often found in canning aisle or order online
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper


  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl with a fork or pastry cutter, to be sure it's all well mixed.
  • Place into a jar with a "shaker lid" to dispense easily.


There is no anti-caking agent in this mix, so if it becomes stuck together shake vigorously or open the lid and mix with a fork so it will become loose enough to shake through shaker lid again.

    1. there are no added preservatives or anti-caking agents, so I used it within a month, it did get dryer and I had to mix it with a fork, but it was still delicious all month long.

  1. This is absolutely genius. I didn’t even think of using something like this on popcorn or on a pretzel. I’ve seen dill pickle sunflower seeds, and they are delicious. So why not use dill pickle on other snack-like dishes too? Thank you for showing us how to make this at home. You better believe i’m giving this a try. Thanks again!
