    First get a small jar (I use a Swartz Spice jar)

    Then add;(To taste)

    Chili Flakes
    Paprika (sweet)
    Garlic Powder
    Grated Parmasan Cheese
    Black Pepper

    What's your compo 'enhancer'
  2. Haven't seen them since coming back from Germany, but I used to carry one of those little plastic compartmented jars with a variety of dried spices in it.

    Or a bottle of Tabasco.
  3. Bring back salt in ration packs. :D

    I would like to enhance mine with a nice bottle of Rioja but I find it's best accompanied by sipping tepid or luke warm water from an issue water bottle. :wink:

  5. Seconded.

    I also use an assortment of fine spices from around the world carried in an old camera film container.

    I also carry a couple of Oxo cubes,handy to add to a Rat pack or for a drink.
  7. What's wrong with the old all-in-one? Nothing beats Corned Beef Hash, mixed with Cream of Chicken Powder, Biscuits Brown, and Vegetable Soup? If I really wanted to treat myself, I'd even throw some screech into the mix.
  8. when i was OC's driver, on the bulkhead above the back door of the old 'series 3',was a row or terri-clips,(just, by some bizarre coincidence,the perfect size for Schwartz jars!) ideal for your own, combat catering spice rack!
  9. I know a Para/SAS bloke who had the mixed herbs and oregano in with the chilli powder and curry, and he was relying on this s*** for long periods.

    I can't help but think splitting "hot" from "herb" has got to be worth the effort.
