Commercially packaged mixes can eat up food dollars, especially if purchased frequently. A practical, money-saving alternative is to make your own mixes.

Commercially prepared salt-free herb and spice blends are growing in popularity. Our homemade version is versatile and the flavors are complementary to many meat, vegetable and starch dishes. Teaspoon measurements are used because the teaspoon easily fits into the seasoning containers.

  • 3 tsps. onion powder
  • 3 tsps. garlic powder
  • 3 tsps. dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp. dried basil leaves
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp. dried marjoram leaves
  • 1 tsp. pepper
In storage container with tight-fitting lid, combine all ingredients; mix well. Seal tightly. Store in cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Stir or shake well before each use.

Yield: 13 teaspoons (about 1/4 cup).
