Why Make Your Own Italian Seasoning?
Making your own Italian seasoning is a great way to ensure that the herbs and spices you are using are the most fresh and flavorful. Store-bought seasoning blends can be expensive, and they often contain added ingredients such as salt and sugar. By making your own seasoning, you can control the quality and quantity of ingredients, and customize the flavor to your liking.
The Importance of Fresh Ingredients
One of the most important things to keep in mind when making your own seasoning blends is to use high-quality, fresh ingredients. Herbs and spices can lose their flavor over time, so it’s important to use ingredients that have not expired. If you have old spices in your pantry, it’s best to simply replace them. The shelf life of this seasoning will depend on the age of the ingredients used. Ground spices typically stay fresh for 2 to 3 years, while dried herbs can last for 1 to 3 years.
Uses for Homemade Italian Seasoning
Italian seasoning can be used in a variety of dishes, including pasta sauces, marinara sauce, pizza toppings, and more. It’s also a great addition to soups, stews, and casseroles. You can use it to season chicken, fish, or beef before grilling or baking. You can even use it to make your own salad dressings or dips.
Once you’ve made your Italian seasoning, it’s important to store it properly to ensure that it stays fresh for as long as possible. Transfer the mixture to an airtight container or spice jar and store it in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing it in a damp or humid area, as this can cause the herbs and spices to lose their flavor.
