Recipes - Do-It-All Seasoning

Turkey and Potato Soup
A great use for leftovers!  You can use the thickening sauce on a hot turkey sandwich too!
2 cups cooked turkey, diced
1 small onion, minced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced in rounds
4 regular potatoes, peeled and diced
1 tsp. Backyard Patch DO-IT-ALL Seasoning
1 Tbls. Butter
2 Tbls. flour
8 cups turkey or chicken stock
Bring stock to simmer.  Serve 1 cup for thickening.  Add the onion, carrots, and potatoes, simmer 30 minutes.  In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat.  Add the flour, stirring or whisking constantly to keep the flour from clumping.  Add 1 cup of soup stock slowly, starting with a few tablespoons and stirring until smooth after each addition.  Pour it back into the soup pot slowly, stirring as you do.  The soup won’t really thicken, but it’ll have a nice color and body.  Add turkey and simmer until potatoes are done and meat is heated through. Serves 4 to 6
Tomato Salad
5 small tomatoes
1 cucumber
1 small red onion
1 Tbls. Backyard Patch Do-it-All
1 Tbls. Water
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
Mix herbs with water let stand for five minutes.  Cut tomatoes into wedges.  Slice cucumbers, peeled or unpeeled.  Slice onion rings and cut in half.  Whisk oil and vinegar into Backyard Patch Do-it-All until well blended.  Place vegetables in bowl and toss with dressing.  Chill for at least one hour to meld flavors.



How it all started

I started growing herbs in 1994. I love the scents, the shades of green, and the scent and texture of the leaves. I love everything about them!

My first herb garden resulted from my need for good tea herbs. To this day, tea is among my favorite creations.

My husband does not use salt or preservatives, as a result all my seasonings and mixes, are all salt free, organic and preservative free.

Commonly asked Questions


Do you use preservatives?

All of our blends are created with no preservatives, flavor enhancers or anti-clumping agents.

We grow our herbs organically, no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides and only organic methods.  The herbs are grown in "hills" placed in rows.  This allows us to walk among the plants but keep a high-quality soil and easy watering methods that makes plants drought resistant.

Are your items salt and gluten-free?

All our herb blends are crafted with no salt and no gluten. Our baking mixes will be clearly marked if they are gluten-free, but all will be low salt. However, since we make all the blends ourselves if you wish no salt in a baking mix (scones, breads, etc.) just ask and we will blend them without salt.

How and where do you ship?

Due to restrictions on plant materials, we only ship to the US or US territories. NO international orders are accepted. All items can be shipped either UPS or USPS depending on weight.

Where do your herbs come from?

We grow almost all of the herbs we use in our blends at our 3/4 acre herb garden. We have been growing herbs since 1994 and created our garden space in 1998 growing our herbs production style in hills and rows.
