Herbes de Provence
I can’t think of many savory dishes that aren’t improved with a pinch of herbes de Provence. If you’re not familiar with this French spice blend, it’s a fragrant mixture that includes lavender and summer savory. It’s great on veggies, meat, and even in mashed potatoes. You can use this recipe from The Herb Gardener to make your own herbes de Provence blend as a perfect gift for the gourmand in your life. Package your herb blend in a small mason jar or other cute container, and you’re ready to gift!
Have you whipped up any custom spice mixes? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments!
