Make your own DIY Italian Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend for a fraction of the cost of a store-bought blend. It’s great to have in your pantry, and makes a lovely gift, too!
I’m in love with making my own seasoning blends. It is just so much less expensive than store-bought alternatives, and you know exactly what you’re putting into it. The best part of all is that it only takes a few minutes to put together! First, purchase your seasonings in bulk. I get mine through Amazon Subscribe and Save because I love the value and convenience. All of the ingredients needed from the parsley to the onion powder and granulated garlic are available online.
DIY Italian Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend
This DIY Italian Garlic & Herb Seasoning makes quite a bit – about 5-1/2 cups – but it keeps for 6-9 months. I like to use small canning jars to store my seasoning blends. You can divide it up and give some as a gift. It’s a lovely addition to a homemade gift basket of goodies for a housewarming or the holidays.
There’s really nothing to this recipe, it’s as easy as can be. In fact, my 4-year-old daughter helped me to make this batch. She loves helping to mix anything, and the idea of adding a bunch of dry items makes it all the better since she knows she doesn’t have to worry about splashing. However, you do need to take care mixing the onion powder in so you don’t end up with a big seasoning cloud in your face!
