Dear Barbara: I was watching Sandra Lee on the food channel and she was using poultry seasoning on chicken. It’s always been like a mystery ingredient to me because I don’t know what’s in it. What are the ingredients and can you only use it on poultry? — Meg from Lodi
Dear Meg: It can be a mystery ingredient if you make it at home. It seems every recipe is different, but most have some basic similarities. McCormick poultry seasoning contains thyme, sage, marjoram, rosemary, black pepper and nutmeg. To this basic combination, some people add other ingredients such as onion powder, cloves, oregano, celery salt or parsley.
