A simple 7-ingredient Italian seasoning blend - perfect for pasta, pizza, burgers, and as an Italian sausage seasoning. Combine these Italian spices in minutes and enjoy the flavors of this mix for months!
If you're using bay leaves then begin by crushing them into smaller pieces. Either do this by hand, with a mortar and pestle, or blitz in a blender for a couple of seconds.
Mix all the herbs in a bowl (or directly in a jar) and give it a good mix/shake.
Transfer to an airtight jar (if it's not already in one) and store in a cool dark place (like a cupboard). Make sure to keep away from direct heat and sunlight and any moisture.
How To Store
Keep it stored in an airtight glass jar for up to 6 months. If you dry your herbs at home from fresh, then the blend can last even up to 2-3 years!It will last longer than six months too, though the quality will deteriorate, and it depends on the freshness of the dried herbs that you begin with - so I aim to use it up within that time and then refresh it with new herbs. You can also freeze this spice mixture in a freezer-friendly glass jar for up to a year. This will help to keep it fresh for longer (as long as it’s 100% airtight so no moisture can enter the jar!).
