I like to use this when I reach for salt, So I lower my intake of salt and kick up the flavor of what I cook. I used home grown herbs that I dried whole. Leaves that are loosely packed into measuring cups. So if using store bought do take note the amounts of the whole herbs would be a lot less. I guesstimate my 2/3's. Great to season any game, roast beef or roast poultry. Season roast veggies, stuffing, rice or potatoes. How about a touch on your eggs. I do like heat but I kept it down in this using only peppercorns. You can add chili powder to really make it hot!
