You can find several different pre-made packaged herb and spice blends in the grocery store, but most of the time it’s really simple to make your own DIY herb and spice blend recipes at home using ingredients you already have in your pantry.
One of the best things about making your own DIY versions of herb and spice blends is that you can customize the recipes to make them exactly the way you like. If there are certain herbs or spices that you don’t like, you can leave them out, and if there are ones that you really like then you can add extra of those.
Making your own herb and spice blends also allows you to control the quality of the ingredients you use, too. Sometimes the pre-packaged blends at the grocery store have artificial flavors, flavor enhancers or stabilizers, other added ingredients, and sometimes even MSG. When you make your own DIY versions, though, you know exactly what ingredients are in your blends, and you can use all natural and organic herbs and spices without any other added ingredients.
You can also sometimes even save some money by making your own herb and spice blends, especially if you find a good deal on bulk herbs and spices. Some pre-made blends can be on the pricier side for a small container, but if you make your own larger batches at home, you can often save some money in addition to having blends that are customizable and high quality.
Here is a list of some great DIY herb and spice blends to stock your pantry with a wide variety of flavors that will work with many different types of recipes.
