Growing up, my mom was never without poultry seasoning in the house. Turkey stuffing HAD to have it or Thanksgiving wasn’t the same. Have you ever tasted poultry seasoning mix? It has a pungent taste that can permeate a dish. I advise to use it sparingly.
These spice blends are designed to enhance poultry dishes. There is no meat included in the mix. Most brands are a combination of rubbed or ground sage, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, nutmeg, and black pepper. Sage is the predominant herb.
You can use this mix as a dry rub for chicken or turkey. Apply under the skin or lightly wet the chicken with water or oil and sprinkle on top.
Add this seasoning to bread or cornbread stuffing.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
