Lemon Seasoning

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘Lemony Herbs Add Zest and Zing to Spring Meals‘.

This lemon blend may be added to soups, dips, sauces, and rice or bread stuffing. Combine equal parts lemon seasoning with one part kosher or sea salt and use as a citrus rub for rough skin. Use one tablespoon with hot water for an herbal tea, or add to sweet and savoury sauces. It may be combined with the dry ingredients in baked goods, or beaten into icing. For this blend, use dried leaves.
(Makes 1 cup if you use 1/4 cup as a ‘part’)
