Provençal herbs are a blend of automatic herbs that come alive during the summer months in Southern France. Picked and dried, they have been used in different variations for countless years by residents of the area.

How Do I Use It?
Herbs de Provence is an excellent addition to organic proteins. We are partial to pairing it with our organic, free range chickens (see this upcoming video for details!). We’ve seen it pair well with Mediterranean food and various wild caught fish dishes. You can add it to potatoes before roasting them for a touch of flavor. It’s wonderful in salads and stews and can be added to a shallow dish of olive oil for dipping. We’ve been known to season an entire chicken before roasting, as its a wonderful way to cover all bases with just one spice blend.
