Mix up you own Simple Italian Seasoning Mix with these easy recipe. Save money and time creating your own seasoning blends
One of the first things I learned while trying to save money in the kitchen was that seasonings can be expensive; especially all of those fancy blends. Purchasing base spices in bulk and creating your own blends is a great way to save some money and really make your recipes stand out with the flavors that you love.
To make your own Italian Seasoning Mix you will need...
Many of these you should already have in your pantry making this blend very easy to mix up.
Where to Buy Spices
If you are looking for the most economical way to get quality spices I have a few suggestions. Skip the regular grocery store. I like to purchase my spices either at a warehouse club (like Sam's Club) or online from Amazon. I prefer the Frontier Co-op brand.
Both of these methods require you to purchase in bulk. This actually saves you the most money per ounce and allows you to make your own seasoning blends.
Creating your own seasoning mixes and blends isn't just money saving. It makes great gifts.
- Create your spice blends and put them in small mason jars or spice jars.
- Give them as gifts with a cute dish towel, pot holder, & wooden spoons.
- Toss in one of your favorite recipes using that blend, or even a small cookbook.
That makes a thoughtful, unique and affordable gift that anyone would love! Perfect for the holidays, newly-weds, or even a housewarming gift.
