Every month my mother receives her Canadian Living Magazine.  Each month I grab her magazine and look through every recipe.  It’s a great magazine and the recipes are always tested till perfect.  She first received the magazine as a Christmas gift from my Aunt Carol.  That was 30+ years ago.  July’s issue had a section on spice rubs that caught my eye.  The Universal Spice Rub!

The Universal Spice Rub promises to be your go to rub for anything and everything.  So far I tested it on chicken, sweet potato wedges, sweet potato chips, more chicken, pork, wings… I’ve loved the results.

    This looks great, but I’m going to eliminate the coconut sugar. You know what is really excellent to use universally is to mix 4 parts salt with 1 part curry powder. The curry taste is hardly there but it enhances all of the other natural flavors in just about anything, especially meat.
