Instructions

  • Chop the onions, garlic, celery and pimento peppers (seasoning pepper) and add to chive, big leaf thyme, chadon beni and spanish thyme.
  • Add some of the ingredients, ½ cup of water and about ¼ cup of vinegar in the blender.
  • Note: Add handfuls of the ingredients at a time and make sure the blender's cover is tightly secured. The ingredients will have to be blended in batches! You may add the hot pepper at this step if desired.
  • Blend until smooth. Strain the green seasoning mixture and collect the liquid below. The liquid will be reused to blend the other batches of ingredients.
  • Collect the strained mixture in a separate bowl.
