What is in Poultry Seasoning?

Have you ever wondered what spices are in poultry seasoning and is there a hint of poultry essence in it? Inquiring minds want to know, well at least my inquiring mind.  I am happy to say there is no poultry in it, do ground down chicken by-products added.  Yippee!

Well I threw out my bottle of poultry seasoning before checking what was in it and now I need some for a recipe I want to try.  I am happy to report that I do have a fix for my problem and I can make my own using existing spices I have in my kitchen, so no need for me to run out and buy some.  If you are interested in making your own poultry seasoning here is a recipe that you can pre-make and store in your own personal spice jar.  Imagine it your made this recipe with fresh dried herbs from your organic garden, how wonderful that will be!
