I had no idea what it was, heres a list of herb substitutes


Herb Substitution Chart


You may find yourself in a situation where you are out of a specified herb in a recipe or perhaps you just don't care for that specific herb. This chart will help you choose substitutions or alternatives that should work with your recipe. Whenever substituting, you must realize that the flavor will not be as originally intended in the recipe. As such, it is wise to begin your substitution with half the specified recipe amount and then adjust to your own personal tastes. You should always feel free to adjust and add to any recipe to suit yourself and your family. Who knows? You just might create a new family favorite!

Lavender is never in any herbes de Provence I have come across and apparently it's an addition mainly for tourists...

Frozzie, that's hilarious, that's the one thing my mum hated in the Herbes de Provence, the lavender!!! Too funny. I remember we had a big pot at home, and it lasted for years as she never used it, the pot was nice though!! :)

She must have been unlucky to get it with lavendar in it .....after 12 years in france and the many occasions i had it, in many different regions and bought it etc not once did any version ever ever have lavendar in it lol.. Im not a fan but prefer it to mixed herbs which i find rather disgusting.. Hugely popular in summer :)
