Traditional Italian herbs mixed in flavorful harmony.
1 Tablespoon dried basil
1 Tablespoon dried marjoram
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 Tablespoon dried rosemary, coarsely ground
1 Tablespoon dried sage
1 Tablespoon dried thyme
For Spicy Italian Seasoning, add to the above:
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
Store-bought ground rosemary is too powdery, but dried rosemary is too pointy to be eaten raw, as this seasoning might be. If you pulse dried rosemary in a spice or coffee grinder for a few seconds until the pieces are about 1/4 of their original length, that’ll save your gums from getting stabbed by the tasty little javelin leaves.
