Herbs de Provence Blend

Herbs de Provence is an earthy fresh seasoning used commonly in the south of France that can be added to many meat, fish, chicken or vegetable dishes.  Its often blended with olive oil and used as a rub prior to cooking.  This special blend of spices makes the meat pop with freshness.  Don't let the lavendar fool you...it's the perfect ingredient for an unusual but delightful taste.

After you've made your favorite blend, seal it in a spice jar, small clay pot or small burlap bag and gift it with a nice ribbon or add to a basket with beans, rice. etc.

  • 3 Tablespoons dried marjoram
  • 3 Tablespoons dried thyme
  • 3 Tablespoons dried savory
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 tbsp. dried lavendar flower
I prefer less sage and marjoram but add chili flakes instead.  This recipe is from Homecooking.com but there are many variations such as www.shesimmers.com that are very good.
