    3                    Bay leaves -- finely
    4       tb           Oregano
    4       tb           Onion powder
    4       ts           Marjoram
    4       ts           Basil leaves
    4       ts           Winter savory -- ground
    4       ts           Garlic powder
    2       ts           Rosemary leaves --
    1       t            Sage
    1       t            Thyme
    1       t            Black pepper -- ground
    1       tb           Lemon zest -- dried
   The recipe is for dried herbs. If you have your own
   herb garden, do try drying your own. They will dry in
   seconds in a microwave, or in a longer time in a warm
   oven (about 180 degrees). Leave the oven door
   slilghtly ajar to allow moisture escape.
   Unless you have not time and patience that I have, buy
   the onion and garlic powders. I have tried chopping my
   own fresh garlic and onion, but they take too long to
   dry for me.
   Mix and crush to a coarse powder with a mortar and
   pestle or a small blender or food processor.
   The Herb Blend is delicious on slald greens, on sliced
   tomatoes and cucumbers, on fish, hamburgers, meat
   loaves, steaks, omelets, etc. Try mixing the Herb
   Blend with a stick of butter or margarine. Let stand
   in refrigerator for a day of two for good flavor. Use
   Herbed butter on vegetables, breads, meats, fish, etc.
