Make Your Own Poultry Seasoning

One day, years and years ago, I ran out of poultry seasoning and needed it for a recipe. In desperation, I found a make your own recipe, whipped some up and used it. I haven’t bought store-bought Poultry Seasoning again. This is a far superior product, and it’s much cheaper to make than it is to buy. The blend of herbs and spices is quite good and you can use this in place of prepared store-bought Poultry Seasoning measure for measure in any recipe calling for Poultry Seasoning.

Use this mixture in stuffings, on roasts, or to enhance soups, stews and gravies.  One of our favorite uses is to generously coat all sides of a lean, pork tenderloin with the Poultry Seasoning and some freshly ground black pepper and then grilling it.  This is one of Copper’s specialties and it’s awesome!

2 Tablespoons dried rosemary
1 Tablespoon dried sage
1 Tablespoon dried savory

There may be bits of rosemary that are not quite powdered. You can either whir the mix just a bit longer, or leave it as is. I usually leave it with the bits of rosemary.

Store in a covered jar or spice container. Use any time poultry seasoning is called for in a recipe, or over most any meats before roasting or grilling, over roasted vegetables, or in soups.
