Poultry seasoning is one of my favorite go to spices to use especially when it comes to chicken recipes and soups. Sage, thyme, rosemary, and nutmeg are dried herbs that add a wonderful flavor to vegetables in any capacity in my opinion. You may not have ever heard of marjoram before, but you are probably more familiar with it than you probably thought.
Marjoram is very similar to oregano because marjoram is a sub-species of oregano which are both part of the mint family. Often, they are mistaken for each other in appearance even though they are slightly different in flavors. Oregano is pungent and zesty while marjoram has a more herbaceous woodsy flavor. Either one of these herbs will make a delicious addition to a recipe.
Back to the poultry seasoning though, they sell it already premade in a spice canister, such as McCormick or the store’s generic brand, although you could make it yourself if you are so inclined or happened to have them all in your spice rack. I have included a homemade recipe for you to check out. Either way, you should try this seasoning in your recipes to get a more and flavorful dish.
