The spices may be blended together using in a spice grinder to make the Greek seasoning mix with a very fine texture. Alternatively, combine the spices into a bowl, toss, and transfer to a proper storage container. If properly stored in a sealed container or bag, the seasoning mix can keep for up to six months without losing flavor. The mix should be stored in a dark, cool area, such as the refrigerator.

Consider including some alternative spices, such as rosemary, dill and marjoram. Combine the salt, oregano and garlic powder in equal parts. The proper seasoning proportion amount for ground cinnamon, pepper and other spices is half of the amount of the salt or oregano used. For a serving of 6 tablespoons, use only 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg; a touch of ground mint leaves is optional. You can add fresh lemon zest, but in this case, store the seasoning mix in the freezer.
