D.I.Y. Poultry Seasoning

 

Poultry Seasoning--D.I.Y. Poultry Seasoning

Poultry Seasoning–D.I.Y. Poultry Seasoning

So we are just a few weeks away from Thanksgiving.  I don’t know about you, but I have been thinking about and planning what I am going to make since September.  We are visiting family out of town, so I doubt that I’ll blog anything once we leave.  I always try, but the kitchen gets pretty busy as we cook our Thanksgiving meal, and since this is the one time a year that we see my husbands family, I prefer to be focused on them.  My daughter’s birthday is also on Thanksgiving so, we try to make it a special day for her.  Poultry seasoning is one of those things that most people pull out just once or twice a year to season their turkey and stuffing/dressing.  I used it a few weeks ago for Chicken in Milk Most people buy it only once a year for just that purpose.  My mom is one of those people.  I remember shopping for Thanksgiving dinner with her when I was little, she always made her way down the dry seasoning aisle to pick up poultry seasoning.  If by some chance we got home and she had  she forgotten it, she would stop what she was doing in the kitchen, and drive to the store to get it.  Besides sage–which I’m blogging about tomorrow–it’s one of the must have’s for most thanksgiving meals.  I LOVE making my own dry seasonings so of course I had to give this a try.  I must say that this poultry seasoning is spot on to the one my mom loves to use.  If you find yourself in a bind on Thanksgiving and desperately need poultry seasoning,  pull out these spices and make your own poultry seasoning. If you have these spices but they’re fresh, even better, just chop them up and give your turkey a good rub down with them and some butter.
