Perfect. I love that this recipe includes tarragon. The others I've tried didn't and that makes this one so much better. THanks for posting.

Made this for Sue L's Basic Chicken Stock Basic Chicken Stock. Only made one as that's all I needed at this time, but plan on making more and storing them just as soon as I get the correct type of jar to store them in. Thanks Sue for an easy and wonderful smelling seasoning that I'll be able to use in quite a few recipes! Enjoy the pics.
