Hold the Salt: Meat Blend I

Substitute with a dash of herbs.

| February/March 1996

This blend is my favorite for beef, pork, veal and hearty stews. 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 tablespoons dried rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons dried savory
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried marjoram
