How to make Italian Spice Mix
Prepping your homemade Italian Seasoning is fairly simple. Measure out your ingredients and put them into either a small mixing bowl or directly into the jar you plan on storing your mix.
Once you’ve got them all added in, just mix all of your ingredients together. Use a whisk, a fork, or- this is especially easy in the jar- just shake to combine.
If you haven’t already done so, transfer your spice mix over to a jar for storage. Assuming you store it well and you used fresh dried spices, this mix should last for a good couple years before the flavors start to go.
