homemade ranch dressing mix

homemade ranch dressing mix. A creamy Buttermilk Ranch Seasoning Originally learned to make the homemade ranch dressing because a friend had food allergies and could no longer eat pre-made dressings.  Turns out, my family loves homemade ranch dressing too.   It is not only used to make dressing but I use it to make, dips, in my chicken breading, in my buffalo dip and in a few other recipes too.  When other kids come over to our house it is often requested as a seasoning on popcorn.  After getting so many requests, I decided I would start making larger batches and give it as gifts.

Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix: (3 tablespoons equal to one packet)

½ cup dried buttermilk powder
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons dried dill
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Add each of the dried spices to a bowl and mix. Place in an airtight container.

Tools and supplies for jar of Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix:

Glass jar with lid
Scrap fabric
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Mitten buttons

1.  Clean and dry a glass jar or mason jar.
2.  Cut a circular piece of fabric for the top.
3.  Place fabric over the lid.  Wrap the jute around the lid and tie in a knot.
4.  Add a drop of hot glue and add mitten buttons.
5.  Trim off the excess jute cording

For the creamy delicious part of the dressing: Mayonnaise, Sour Cream, and milk   There is no right or wrong combination.  I like mayo and the hubby likes sour cream.  I use a 1/2 cup of each.  Add milk a tablespoon at a time to get the dressing to the thinness you like.  I like it runny and the kids like it thick.  If you want to use it as a dip you can omit the milk or substitute cream cheese.  I also like to add it to Kefir.
