I love this. This is a newer discovery for me since I have an issue with trying new flavors in case I ruin foods. 

We recently ordered an Herb Pack from Bountiful Baskets because I wanted the Dill, Garlic and a few other herbs. I decided that it was better to try the new herbs (Sage, Cilantro and Rosemary) then to waist them. *Normally we hated rosemary. I think the way I dried it made Rosemary much more enjoyable and not as intense.

So I searched for some ideas and by the time I was done I had decided to just make it like an all purpose seasoning instead of trying to find needs for each seasoning.

I started off with drying the herbs individually in the oven at 250*F for a few hours (checking every 30-45 minutes). As the herbs dry I crush them and place them back into the oven until they are completely dried. After they seem to be completely dry I leave them in the oven for an additional 30 minutes to ensure that I did not miss any moisture. (Moisture would cause your dry herbs to mold)

I do not know if this method is the best way to dry herbs but it works for me, and it works for my family. If you already dry your herbs differently I would like to hear how you do it. No hanging methods tho. Every time I try the drying method the herbs mold on me.

OK, now to the seasoning.

You can also do a powdered version if you would like. I have made both and we really like both.

If you want to make the powder version like I did this time, place the ingredients into a coffee grinder and grind until you have a powder consistency.

I made a larger batch so I do not have to make it on a regular basis (we use it that much)

That is all you have to do. Use on everything you want to have new flavor. I have not found a food or recipe yet that I do not like this mixed in or on the top (of course this omits desserts.)

*Dill is missing from the photos because I ran out before making this batch. 

We use this on:

Chicken

Beef

Pork

Soups

Casseroles

Pastas
