Herb Powder for Flavouring, When Fresh Herbs are Not Obtainable

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce of dried lemon-thyme
  • 1 ounce of dried winter savory
  • 1 ounce of dried sweet marjoram and basil
  • 2 ounces of dried parsley
  • 1 ounce of dried lemon-peel

Instructions

Prepare and dry the herbs; pick the leaves from the stalks, pound them, and sift them through a hair-sieve; mix in the above proportions, and keep in glass bottles, carefully excluding the air. This, we think, a far better method of keeping herbs, as the flavour and fragrance do not evaporate so much as when they are merely put in paper bags. Preparing them in this way, you have them ready for use at a moment's notice.

Mint, sage, parsley, etc., dried, pounded, and each put into separate bottles, will be found very useful in winter.
