What dried herbs do you actually use?

Westminstress | May 17, 2011 09:04 AM

I am cleaning and reorganizing my spice cabinet ... whee! I am moving the spices from a cupboard to a couple of small drawers. I am buying all new jars that will fit in the drawers, and I found really cute custom spice labels on etsy for the top of the jars. Yay! Most of what I have in my cabinets is quite old, so I'm going to toss it and buy fresh as needed, but I want to order the labels now, which leads me to my question: What dried herbs would I actually use?

I mostly use fresh herbs. I have quite a few jars of dried herbs that I have not opened in years ... do I really want to buy labels for them? The ones I occasionally use in dried form are oregano, epazote and tarragon (the last two only because they can be hard to find fresh where I am). Do I really need to create labels for basil, dill, mint, rosemary, sage, and thyme, for example? Or maybe there is something that I don't have but should -- fines herbs, for example?

What dried herbs do you actually use and are there any that you find indispensable?
