You’ve heard of Greek Seasoning before right? NO?! Take a look down the Spice aisle in your local supermarket and you’ll find only one brand of commercially produced Greek Seasoning.
See the ingredients on the back panel: Black Pepper, Garlic, Oregano, Parsley and “five other spices”, along with some other stuff. On top of that, it’s not cheap either!
So I did an internet search for a recipe, a formula if you will; there are oodles of them. I already had all of the ingredients in my Spice Rack, so I put together a blend that we really like and I use it in and on just about anything.
Greek Seasoning Ala Auntie Doni
3 tsp. Dried Oregano
2 tsp. each Dried Mint, Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley and Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp each Dried Basil, Marjoram, Granulated Garlic and Onion Powder
In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
I go one more step and grind everything, working in small batches, in either a Spice Grinder or small Food Processor, or my favorite method, using a Mortar and Pestle, you’ll get a finer grind.
Store in an airtight container for as long as 6 months, but I don’t think it’ll last that long. I put this in Salad Dressing, on grilled Meats and Vegetables, on Bread dough, like Focaccia before it goes in the oven, anything that you want a hint of Greek in.
I make multiple batches of my Greek Seasoning, they make great gifts 😉
