How to Make Italian Seasoning
Making your own Italian Seasoning is easy and allows you to adjust the flavors to your tastes. Many store-bought seasonings can be high in salt – this homemade version is salt-free and gluten-free (just double-check your dried herbs!). Additionally, making spice blends at home is often more cost-effective than purchasing pre-made versions.
Simply mix the spices in the recipe below and store it in a jar or an airtight container for up to 6 months. You can keep it longer since the spices are dried, but it will begin to lose flavor.
