Italian Seasoning


Our trips to the farmer’s market makes us realize how much more healthy we can eat. It can begin with our seasonings we put on our vegetables and meats. Here is my Italian seasoning recipe that is very simple and can be molded around what you like, have and desire! Cheers from Carbo

Take fresh rosemary, sage, basil and make sure they are dry, clean and the tie them together or bunch with a rubber band. Punch or cut several holes in a paper bag. Label the bag with the name of the herb you are drying.

Place the herb bundle upside down into the bag.

Gather the ends of the bag around the bundle and tie closed. Make sure the herbs are not crowded inside the bag.

Hang the bag upside down in a warm, airy room.

Check in about two weeks to see how things are progressing. Keep checking weekly until your herbs are dry and ready to store.

Remove from the bag, finely chop add coarse ground pepper and sea salt. Now you have your own fresh Italian Seasoning!
