I have some seasoning recipes that theoretically reproduce the Zanzibar blends for pork and beef, according to the original poster of the recipes. How accurate they are is a separate matter, but license to produce the seasonings still exists, and the recipes were allegedly from a former Heller employee who made the blends, daily.
