Use this homemade poultry seasoning to flavor your Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing. It’s made with common spices and herbs that you probably already have in your pantry. Just take a couple minutes to mix them together, and you won’t have any need for the store-bought kind.
2 Tbsp ground thyme
2 Tbsp ground sage
2 Tbsp ground rosemary
2 tsp ground marjoram
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
What You Do:
Mix all the herbs and spices together; then, store your homemade poultry seasoning in an air-tight container.
This recipe makes 7 Tbsp of poultry seasoning (just under 1/2 cup), so it fits perfectly in a 4-oz jelly jar or an empty spice jar. Be sure to label your jar, so you don’t mix it up with another spice blend.
If you only have the dried, leaf version of one or more of the herbs called for, use a spice grinder, a mortar and pestle or a food processor to grind them up, or go ahead and use them in their whole form. You’re poultry seasoning will turn out great either way.
Out of one of the herbs that you need to make this? Just leave it out, or replace it with something else. Poultry seasoning is incredibly forgiving, so don’t hesitate to tweak this recipe to suit your tastes, and the ingredients you have on hand. Nutmeg, ginger, celery seed, paprika, garlic powder and cayenne pepper are just some of the ingredients that you might want to consider adding to your poultry seasoning.
