Mix-N-Match Popcorn Sprinkles

Tired of the same old bland popcorn? Reduce or eliminate salt and add healthy taste with your own garden-grown dried herbs and a few from the grocery. For easy preparation, make several different sprinkles at one time and store in labeled shaker-top bottles. Each recipe uses dried and finely powdered herbs and makes about one-half cup. A great kids' project-the sprinkles make unique gifts, too!

1 tablespoon each of onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil

1 tablespoon each of onion powder and garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
