Ah, thank you! I'll mix up the loose meat mix. I've tried her suggestion for the sausage seasoning, but it doesn't taste quite the same.

I am obsessed with Jo's spices. I have ordered every one that was offered at the time (four were discontinued) and I wrote a thread on this team of all the ingredients on the package. take a look there. I have come up with very close mixtures by reading the newsletters. I believe these are as close as I can get:

Loose Meat
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp Garlic granules
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1/2 Tbsp Mustard Seed
1/2 Tbsp Allspice
1/2 Tbsp Coriander
1/2 Tbsp Marjoram
1/2 Tbsp Oregano

Lemon Herb Pepper
2 Tbsp dried lemon peel
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp onion flakes
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried thyme (dont know if its ground or leaves)

Apple Pie
4 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp ground nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger

I use these all the time.

oh I loved the loose meat one! Hopefully some one can share the recipes for them with us. I believe they were in some early publications of Jo's.

Now that there is no more Healthy Exchanges, there's no place to buy Jo's Spices anymore. I can find substitutes for the easy ones like apple pie spice and lemon pepper, but there are a few that are pretty hard to replace, like loose meat seasoning and sausage seasoning. Has anybody found a place to buy good seasoning blends that are close to Jo's Spices?
