If you have not experienced HDP (Herbs De Provence) before, you are in for a treat.
This blend of spice is a staple in a French home. HDP is great on fish, as a seasoning for roasted vegetables or potatoes, and is even used to season roasts and slow cooked meats. HDP is salt free without sacrificing flavor. You may want to use smaller amounts until you know for sure you like it....some folks report that it is an acquired taste. If you like the aroma, you'll love the taste.
Keep it Spicy!
