About

Source: this is the way I make them, others also make them in layers of salt instead of a mix

This a traditional Quebecois herb mix

* this salted herb mixture can be used to flavour stews, meats, soups or anything else you desire, just open jar and sprinkle in desired amount, keeping in mind to adjust salt in recipe as you are adding some salt with the herbs, alternately you can take out desired amount and rinse salt off before adding to your recipe

*keeps well in fridge for many months

*another method is to simply add herb mixture and salt in layers in the jar, ending with salt
