Italian seasoning is quite easy to make as you will be using ingredients that you most probably have with you. It will only take a few minutes to prepare it and if you store it in a proper way, you can have a seasoning that will be able to last you for up to six months.
Here are some of the ingredients that you will need to make an Italian seasoning
- Dried oregano
- Dried thyme
- Dried sage
- Dried rosemary
- Dried marjoram
- Dried basil
For all the above ingredients, the amount that you will use will depend on whether you need a minimal amount or you need a supply that can last for up to 6 months.
Take all the ingredients and put them in a bowl and whisk them until they are combined.
If you will not be using all the seasoning at that time, you will put what remains in an airtight container and store it in a cool place.
Though buying Italian seasoning from a local store may seem like the easiest way, making them is even better. You will be sure that all the ingredients in the seasoning are herbs and if there is a herb that you are allergic to, you have a choice to not use it.
Always ensure that you use high-quality herbs that have been prepared under hygienic conditions if you want your Italian seasoning to be of a high quality.
In addition to the above ingredients, some people will add garlic salt, onion powder, white sugar, black pepper, and dried parsley, among others. Each of these ingredients will give your Italian seasoning a unique taste. If you will be putting the seasoning in the food meant for the whole family including the children, it would be prudent to avoid putting too much black pepper.
