This comes from a Canadian web site, here is what was said about these herbs:These seasonings seem to be added to a lot of traditional French- Canadian recipes. "Herbs preserved with vegetables and salt make a lively seasoning for soups-particularly pea soup - sauces, stews and omelettes. A commercial brand, Les Herbes Salees du bas du fleuve, is marketed by J.Y. Roy of St. Flavie, Quebec. This recipe comes from the Metis district."
