Herbes de Provence

Don't like some herbs, yet love others? Here's one way to build your very own, Herbes de Provence.

 Use two herbs, thyme and savory as your base, and then add your favourites.

 Flexitarians may want to add rosemary and sage to complement meats. 

 Pescatarians, vegans and vegetarians could add oregano, marjoram, and lavender flowers for a lighter, more subtle flavour that won't smother the delicate flavours of vegetables. 

 Here's another idea! Switch out the herbs each season. This way you'll have four unique, totally 'you' styles throughout the year. 

 Or, if you've found the one and only that you love and can't bear to change, then just use less or more, depending on your taste or the season! 

 Allergic or sensitive to lavender? Leave it out! Surprisingly, many people are sensitive to linalool, the fragrant essential oil in this plant.
