I used to buy an “Italian Seasoning” spice mix. It was a nice blend and I used it a lot.
The label read:
WOW! I grow most of those. When I posted about some croutons I made, I used “Herbs de Provence” and it was then I realized that I needed to add Marjoram and Savory to my herb garden so I can make my own mixed spiced.
Spring has come and gone and we are in a pretty bad drought here in South Texas. I never did get any marjoram planted. I did get some savory planted, but that along with everything else I planted this spring it is not doing well at all. This was the spring I made a big push to get a lot of perennials planted and it has been a bad year to do that. In the mean time, I have some dried herbs from last year and I have ordered some others from Mountain Rose Herbs.
I have started mixing up some of my own “Italian Herbs.”
For my Italian-style seasonings I used equal parts:
The only herb missing in my cupboard is marjoram. For now, I will do without it, but will add it to my list of dry herbs to order get I place an order.
Every time I make something myself I am reminded of how many things I can do and often how really very easy it is to do. The only down side is finding storage space for all those bulk herbs, dried beans and bags of flour. That is not a complaint, just an observation. I wouldn’t go back to buying boxed food or pre-mixed seasoning for anything.
Do you have any herb/spice blend recipes that you make?
