Herbes de Provence

The most common herbs used in Provençal cooking are mixed together in dried form to make herbes de Provence, a summer grilling favorite throughout France. The mixture often contains lavender, but we’ve omitted it because some find the floral overtones off-putting.

Comments on this Recipe

This is a pretty standard mix for "herbs de provence" but I always add lavender! If you find lavender overly strong try adding a smaller amount or add some lemon rind and lavender to the mix it mellows things out.

What do you mean by "savory"?

Hi B - Savory is the name of an herb that tastes a bit like a cross of thyme and mint. I'm pretty sure you can find it in the herb/spice aisle at most supermarkets, but you can also order it from a specialty store like Penzeys. Hope this helps!
