I love my Homemade Herbamare so much that I decided to include it with a few Christmas gifts this year. (Shhh!)
What’s so great about Homemade Herbamare?
- It tastes great, especially on meat. (Try Whole Chicken in the Crockpot or Marinated Steak Bites). A friend claims she uses it on “everything” now, including salmon and scrambled eggs.
- It’s healthy. My version contains Redmond’s Real Salt, which is very nutritious (as opposed to regular table salt, which is terrible for you!). It also contains organic herbs. (See below). It does NOT contain MSG or any other undesirable ingredients.
- It’s frugal. (See below).
I love guacamole.
Until Little Brother arrived on the scene, I was, alas, the only avocado-lover at the Yankee Homestead. So sad.
I made guacamole only for guests, because I was incapable of eating a whole batch on my own.
Now I can whip up a small batch and even Mr. Native Texan will pitch in and eat some! Older Brother’s still holding out, but in time I hope he too will come to appreciate the Amazing Avocado.
Update: Baby Bro has joined the ranks of avocado fans at my house. Hooray!
