Italian seasoning is a ready-mix of dried rubbed herbs that are “characteristically Italian.”
You can buy it ready-mixed at stores, but making your own is far cheaper, and can often be far fresher. It also gives you control of what goes in the mix.
There is no official version of what goes in the mix. This mix has eight different herbs; some versions have as few as four.
Feel free to vary the proportions of the ingredients based on your personal tastes, or to omit an herb that you don’t have on hand.
Yield: 50 g (1 cup / 16 tablespoons) of dry mix
