Herbal Culinary Mixtures

There are almost  as many culinary herb mixes as there are herbs. Following are a few of my favorites.

Fines Herbes
Equal parts dryed chives, parsley and chervil. I like to add thyme and oregano too.

Fresh Italian Seasoning
Fresh from the garden mediteran oregano, basil, garlic (this can be dried chips), parsley, sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.

Bouquet Garni (for soups and stews)
I place the dried or freah herbs in cheese cloth to make a tea bag type of package. I use parsley, sweet bay, thyme and celery - I like a pinch of garlic too.

Favorite Chicken Seasoning
Oregano, garlic, basil, rosemary, lemon pepper and a pinch of cinnamon.

Fish Seasoning
Dried or fresh dill or dill seeds, garlic, thyme, lemon pepper, and a pinch of rosemary and oregano.

Pork Seasoning
Rosemary (I like lots), sea salt, fresh ground pepper, sweet bay leaf, garlic. This is really good if all the herbs are fresh.
