Almost exactly like the old Beau Monde seasoning that everyone loves to use in just about everything!

I added a teaspoon of ground cloves and allspice instead of the tablespoons called for, because they are the strongest spices. This mix is definitely great and woke up my palate! TASTY! Better than store bought. Added it to Bloody Marys and deviled eggs- NICE! Thank you so much for sharing! Read More

While this may be delicious in certain uses, if you are looking for the Spice Islands version of Beau Monde, this is not what you want. Spice Islands' own website states their seasoning is a blend of salt, celery and onion. I am giving this a 3 because it was the only way I could leave a review to let people know this, and, as I said, it may indeed be good for some things. Read More

Wish I'd read this first. I agree that all you can taste is the overpowering chives! I had some Beau Monde purchased from Bulk Barn in Canada, but they don't sell it anymore. It was fabulous. Thankfully I have a tbsp of the original to compare the smell to. This was nowhere near it! Read More

I didn't have the celery seed or mace perhaps that what did it but the cloves overpowered everything. Be careful. Read More

I really don't like this seasoning combo and I had to buy some expensive spices to make it. Won't do again. Read More

This IS a Beau Monde, or Beautiful World blend of spices, and a good one. I am used to a slightly mellower, redder version and I figured out that an added tablespoon of Hungarian paprika to this recipe balances the whole thing out to my liking. Try it. If you are used to the Spice Island version be warned this recipe is nothing like that "blend" of salt, sugar(dextrose),onion and celery seed(and silicone dioxide, a flavorless mineral meant to prevent caking). But comparing that version to the real thing is like comparing Taco Bell hot sauce to a real Mexican salsa. Just the truth of the matter. I love this on salmon and red meat. Read More

I made up this recipe and cut back on the ground cloves. As a seasoned cook it was easy to see that this would be way too much. This recipe is not anything like the Beau Monde you can buy in the grocery store. I was very disappointed in the results and had to buy a bottle of the real thing to compare. When you read the ingredients on the Beau Monde jar the ingredients listed are salt dextrose onion and celery seed. I think the author of this recipe got the name of it confused with another seasoning. As I have to select a star rating I am selecting the lowest. Read More

I made this "Beau Monde" to use in a vegetable dip and the cloves cinnamon and allspice were overpowering. Next time I'll pay the 6 and buy the real stuff Read More
