Herbal Condiments

Herbal Condiments

This year we have been experimenting with new ways to use our herb seasoning, blends and mixes. All of these sauces and ketchups can be made with Backyard Patch Blends you may already have in your kitchen.  Open that drawer or box, pull out the blend and get stirring.  These are quick and easy and will keep for several days in the refrigerator, the ketchups even longer, so you can make them ahead and enjoy them on the spur of the moment.
