DIY Poultry Seasoning

Good Monday and welcome to my new followers.  Thanks to all who take the time from their busy lives to read this blog.  It is truly appreciated.

I fear that I may not be following some of you so, if you follow me, please leave a comment with your blog address; and I will hop over right away to follow you back.  Thanks.

On Wednesday, I will be posting this month’s Crazy Cooking Challenge which is stuffings.  Leading up to that I am going to do a couple of posts for homemade ingredients for stuffings.

I have recipes that I use year round that have poultry seasoning as an ingredient.  Some people buy poultry seasoning at Thanksgiving time, use it, then let it sit until the next Thanksgiving time when they buy new because they are afraid that what they have is not good.  If you are one of those people, this may be of help to you.

Poultry seasoning is a combination of a number of seasonings that most people already have on hand in their pantry.  The usual ingredients are  sage, thyme, marjoram, rosemary and sometimes basil and oregano.  These can be combined to suit one's personal taste.  I like sage, myself, so use a bit more of that herb.

DIY Poultry Seasoning
Here is the basic combination that I use.  Adjust it to your own taste:
1 1/2 t. dried crumbled sage
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. dried marjoram
1 t. crushed rosemary
1/2 t. coarse ground pepper
1 t. celery seed

Combine ingredients and whirl in a mini food processor or coffee grinder until a medium powder.  You may also use a mortar and pestle.  Makes about 2 T. poultry seasoning.  Store airtight.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I use my poultry seasoning a lot. I bet this blend would do the trick.

  2. I love to make my own seasoning blends, so I will definitely be trying this. LOVE it that you don't get preservatives and MSG when making your own :) I found you on Marvelous Mondays. Thanks for linking up!

  3. Good idea! I make my own taco seasoning, and haven't ventured into others yet. Thanks for sharing at Must Try Monday.
