Although Herbes de Provence can be found in most grocery stores, it is easy to prepare your own mixture. The combinations can vary, but thyme and savory are generally used; rosemary is included for lamb preparations. Lavender adds a pleasantly pungent aroma.

    I added 1 TB dried sage. It help bring out the umami of the Savory and Thyme. Also, used fresh rosemary so I cut it down to half as much which also balances the dried Lavender better. I typically use 1 TB fresh Rosemary to 1 TS dried Lavender or 1 1/2 - 2 TS fresh Lavender.

    Just what I was looking for, planning on making up jars of this to give away for Christmas.

    This is one thing I use all the time. Having the recipe will surely help, especially when I run out of it, and need some in a hurry. Thanks Martha
