   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    bay leaves -- finely chopped
    4      tablespoons   oregano
    4      tablespoons   onion powder
    4      teaspoons     marjoram
    4      teaspoons     basil leaves
    4      teaspoons     winter savory -- ground
    4      teaspoons     garlic powder
    2      teaspoons     rosemary leaves
    1      teaspoon      sage
    1      teaspoon      thyme
    1      teaspoon      black pepper -- ground
    1      tablespoon    lemon zest -- dried
 
 The recipe is for dried herbs. If you have your own herb garden, do try
 drying your own. They will dry in seconds in a microwave, or in a longer
 time in a warm oven (about 180 degrees). Leave the oven door slilghtly ajar
 to allow moisture escape.
 
 Unless you have not time and patience that I have, buy the onion and garlic
 powders. I have tried chopping my own fresh garlic and onion, but they take
 too long to dry for me. 
 
 Mix and crush to a coarse powder with a mortar and pestle or a small
 blender or food processor. 
 
 The Herb Blend is delicious on slald greens, on sliced tomatoes and
 cucumbers, on fish, hamburgers, meat loaves, steaks, omelets, etc. Try
 mixing the Herb Blend with a stick of butter or margarine. Let stand in
 refrigerator for a day of two for good flavor. Use Herbed butter on
 vegetables, breads, meats, fish, etc.
