Homemade Herb Seasonings

Creating premixes of herbs and spices is a great way to give new flavor to your usual dishes.

I keep this salt substitute on the table to sprinkle on vegetables, ­salads, eggs—or anything else that I would normally salt.

As you combine the ingredients, crumble or chop them to the consistency that you want. Store extras in tightly covered jars in a dark place to preserve their flavor for as long as possible. For use at the table, keep the blends in salt shakers with large holes; blends made with whole spices may be kept in pepper mills.

  • 2 teaspoons dried savory
