Poultry Seasoning Mix Recipe

This recipe I found somewhere years ago and no longer remember where. I like it and it works for poultry. It does not have salt in it. So, do not forget to add salt on your poultry along with adding this spice mix. I have forgotten and have learned that salt is a wonderful and most important spice to bring out flavor besides sugar in moderation. I had to add salt after  the cooking and that worked too.
Recipe:

3T. dry rosemary
3 T. dry oregano
3 T. dry crumbled or ground sage
2 T. dry ground ginger
2 T. dry marjoram
2 T. dry or ground thyme
1 T. dry ground pepper (optional)

Mix in a small bowl and store in a glass jar with lid.

sprinkle on meat with salt before cooking. If meat is skinned, mix some vegetable oil with some spice and rub onto poultry. I am sure you can add this spice mix to a marinade.
I have written the poultry seasoning mix recipe on a piece of paper and taped it on the jar. this makes for easy prep. when you run out of spice and dinner is being prepared in a hurry. I have done this to a few other spice mixes and need to do it to all, because I hate having to search for a recipe when I need more spice now... Hope you enjoy the mix.

I say the pepper is optional because I am not a big pepper fan. As a matter a fact, I could live with out this spice. When I grew up and wanted spicy, I grabbed cayenne or jalapeno and still do. I think dry ground black pepper in small amounts does has a mild flavorful spice to it.
