|1 dstspn x||Full of coriander seeds, toasted and coarsely ground|
|2 tbsp x||Picked thyme leaves|
|2 tbsp x||Picked rosemary leaves, chopped|

all the spices and grind them coarsely, place them in a blender with the oil and herbs and blitz for 1 minute.
then be used to season pheasant meat a day or two before cooking.
there is no salt in this recipe (to prevent the meat curing as it marinates) so you will need to season with salt at the point of cookery.
