Today is National Eat more Herbs/spices less Salt Day

For our family Jerry uses
2 Tablespoons of  paprika
1 Tablespoon of  onion powder
1 Tablespoon of Garlic powder
1 Tablespoon thyme
1 Tablespoon of oregano

We use this seasoning on most items instead of salt. This mixture was found in a Amish cookbook.

If we did use salt it would be sea salt- but at this time we are not using any salt. Remember sea salt is more powerful than regular salt. - And always season after cooking not during.

I plan to purchase a herb garden for our kitchen so Patience can have fun watching the herbs grow and taste the different flavors.
As far as herbs cilantro is my favorite. I love it on almost anything.
Below is a simple link to the different herbs and their purpose

I hope in your journey today you discover a new flavor with a herb you have never used. Remeber apperance and taste make a meal.
