This is an easy all-purpose spice mix for chicken, turkey, and even pork (pigs can fly, can't they?). They sell it in bottles, but you can make it yourself easily, and modify the ingredients to your taste. Each bottler has its own proprietary mix, but sage is the main ingredient in all of them. Here's my recipe.
3 tablespoons dried crumbled sage
1 tablespoon dried crumbled thyme
1 tablespoon dried crumbled marjoram
1 tablespoon dried rosemary, whole leaves
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1/4 teaspoon cloves, powdered
These can be dried storebought herbs. Mix them together in a spice grinder, coffee grinder, or mortar and pestle. Grind into a powder, and store in a tightly sealed glass bottle.
