Enchanting to smell and bewildering in taste.
The Saratoga Spicery Herbes de Provence is a tour of delicate flavors. This classic blend from the South of France for country cooking, also known as Provençal herbs, is floral, flavorful, fruity & fresh.
There are as many mixtures of Herbes de Provence as there are ways to use it. Ours is a purist mixture, with a very unique and delicious flavor from a special combination of hand-blended (mixed together, but not ground) thyme, basil, summer savory, oregano, and rosemary with a hint of marjoram, that represents the bounty and fragrance of the region. And it makes everything taste heavenly.
Herbes de Provence is used to add the flavor of the French countryside with ease and simplicity instead of using individual herbs. The most common types of foods in which Herbes de Provence is used include grilled meats and vegetables, roasted chicken, baked fish as well as in soups, gravies and stews.

Did you know… Marjoram (an herb in the oregano family) was referred to as the “Joy of the Mountains” by the Greeks and celebrated throughout the Mediterranean for its flavor, fragrance and medicinal values. If wild marjoram grew on a grave, it was thought to bring happiness to the departed. Both the Greeks and Romans adorned young couples with a marjoram crown and in ancient Egypt, the herb was offered upon altars to the Egyptian deities.
