How to make Italian seasonings
Making your own Italian seasoning is easy and allows you to adjust the flavors to your liking. Many store-bought seasonings can be high in salt – this homemade version is salt-free and gluten-free (just check your dried herbs!). Plus, making spice blends at home is often more economical than buying pre-made versions.
Just mix the spices in the recipe below and store in a jar or airtight container for up to 6 months. You can keep it longer after the spices have dried, but it will start to lose its flavor.
