I needed Herbes de Provence for Tish's Herbed Rotisserie Chicken Recipe #46472 and I am so glad I used this recipe instead of running to the store. Herbes de Provence never tasted this good! I omitted the Rosemary because I was out, but used the rest of the ingredients. The main taste of the chicken dish was the herbs, and I must say, this recipe made the chicken absolutely delicious! Thanks for posting!
Shop bought doesn't smell like this ! the aroma is wonderful... fresh fresh fresh. I didn't have summer savory, lavender or fennel, but all the rest went into the food processor as I prefer a finer texture. My mixture was slighly damp-ish and I worried about it going mauldy if I put it all into a jar, so I collected some of my little teeny tupperware containers, added a little water and froze half the mixture in usable portions. I was using this in recipes the same day, and noticed later on that the rest of the mix had dried out a little, so should keep in a jar no problem. Yes, I know that the photo also features parsley, coriander and sage and that these are not in this recipe, I just wanted to make the pic more appealing and give it a real herb-y feel :) This is an excellent recipe and if you choose to freeze the mix or store it in a jar, It won't dissapoint you. Please see my rating system: an excellent 5 stars. Thanks Troy !!!
An all-around, good seasoning mix to have in your spice cabinet. l made two separate batches, one with lavender and the other without and cut the recipe in half, too. My handy-dandy coffee mill that I use just for grinding spices came in so useful for grinding the herbs. Plan on using this seasoning on lamb (see recipe #71131). Thanks for posting. cg
