Poultry seasoning is a delicious dried spice mix that really brings out the flavor of chicken and turkey.
Don’t you just love it when you are all set to make one of your favorite recipes and discover that you are out of a single ingredient? I had that happen to me tonight as I was making my favorite Chicken Pot pie soup.
I had all of the spices that I needed except for the most important one – poultry seasoning. Keep reading to learn how I made my own.
DIY Poultry Seasoning is so easy to make.
I knew roughly what spices go into the spice mix, and I had them all on hand, so I tinkered a bit and came up with a poultry seasoning that smells just like the store bought kind.
It is simple to make too. Also, poultry seasoning is used so rarely (at least by me) that it makes sense to make your own, instead of paying top dollar for a retail store that will go stale by the time you use it all.
All you need to make the DIY poultry seasoning blend are these spices:
- 2 teaspoons ground sage
- 1 teaspoons ground thyme
- 1 teaspoon ground marjoram
- 3/4 teaspoon ground rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Just mix all the ingredients and store in a clean, dry spice bottle. This makes just a little over 1/8 cup of the poultry seasoning.
I even made a little spice jar label for your poultry seasoning that you can download and print. (I print mine on glossy photo paper and just stick it to the jar with a glue stick.
Easy peasy and it looks nice on the cupboard shelf.
Just click the photo below and print it out. If you use this label on a blog post, please link back to me. ()
And now, off to make that chicken pot pie soup, because I have all the ingredients that I need!
