    poultry seasoning

    Hi,

    I hope someone can help with this. Can anyone tell me what spices are found in poultry seasoning? I can't remember the brand name, but whenever I cooked a turkey in Canada, I would use poultry seasoning in the stuffing. It just isn't available in Oz where I'm living now. I tried the mixed herbs that people use, but it's not the same. At least if I knew what the ingredients were, I could try and mix my own.

    Thanks

    Re: poultry seasoning

    I haven't bought commercial poultry seasoning in decades, I find it more reliable to mix my own. I use sage, majoram, thyme, savory, salt & white pepper. I'm afraid I can't help you with proportions or amounts, I tend to just start with a little of this, and add a little of that, until it all smells like what I'm looking for. Sage is the predominant flavor, but you can easily adjust to your own taste.

    Re: poultry seasoning

    McCormick's ingredient list for poultry seasoning lists: thyme, sage, marjoram, rosemary, black pepper & nutmeg. http://www.mccormick.com/productdetail.cfm?ID=6435

    If this ingredient list follows the usual conventions, they use more thyme than sage. That may explain why I always added extra sage to my stuffing when I was using the commercial product.
