📝 Seasoned Salt Ingredients:
- Table Salt - iodized regular salt is used in this recipe. Do not use kosher salt or flake salt.

If your grocery store does not carry superfine sugar, you can place regular white granulated sugar in a food processor or coffee grinder and pulse until very fine.
Powdered sugar is NOT the same as superfine sugar and should not be used in place of superfine sugar for this recipe. Powdered sugar contains a small amount of an anticlumping agent.
You can use fine salt in place of table salt.
