Garlic-Free Blends - Information and Spice Variations

For those of you with allergies or aversions to garlic, it can be hard to find good spice blends. Garlic is such a pervasive flavor across culture that it crops up in spice blends from Southwestern to Gateway to the North. But despite our love of garlic, we do make several blends that are garlic-free. In addition to our sweet baking blends (which obviously do not contain garlic), the blends and seasonings below are delicious without any garlic at all.
