This Homemade Creole Seasoning Spice Blend is made with most items already in your spice cabinet. Without the loaded salt that comes with pre-packaged spice blends, this homemade version is perfect on Southern dishes needing a little authentic flavor.
Ever wonder what the difference between Creole and Cajun is?
Well I did and after reading up on the terms it all boils down to this.
Cajun is a word used to describe the French colonists who moved from the Acadia region of Canada down to Louisiana after the British conquest of Acadia (known today as present-day New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia) in the 1700s.
Creole is a term used to describe the people who were born to these new settlers in French colonial Louisiana, especially New Orleans.
Another thing I might add is that typically Creole food uses tomatoes and Cajun food does not.
