If you’ve dried and saved your herb garden bounty, consider giving some of those home grown culinary herbs away as gifts. After all, not every cook has access to a herb garden. You can either package up individual herbs in lovely canisters, jars, or bags or mix up a custom herb blend that will have your chef friends naming recipes after you. Here are some mix recipes to make yourself.
- Herbes de Provence: 2 tbsp dried basil, 1 tbsp dried marjoram, ½ tbsp dried rosemary, 1 tbsp dried summer savory, 2 tbsp dried thyme, 2 teaspoon lavender flowers, 1 bay leaf.
- Pasta seasoning: 4 tbsp dried basil, 2 tbsp dried oregano, 1 tbsp dried thyme, 1 teaspoon dried garlic, 1 bay leaf.
- Barbecue Rub for meat or vegetables: 3 tbsp dried basil, 2 tbsp dried oregano, 2 tbsp dried rosemary, 1 tbsp dried savory, 1 teaspoon dried fennel, 2 bay leaves.
