The House of Representatives is nearing a vote on a proposal to declare Bell's Seasoning our official state seasoning.
If the House has a taste for the sage proposal, by seasoned state Rep. James Murphy (D-Weymouth), it would go to the Senate, where it could then shake out as a bill for the governor to take the measure of.
Murphy's bill reads in its entirety:
"Bell's Seasoning," created by William G. Bell, a Boston inventor in 1867 and manufactured in East Weymouth Massachusetts, shall be the official seasoning of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
According to its manufacturer, the product best known for its uses around Thanksgiving is:
A unique combination of rosemary, oregano, sage, ginger, and marjoram - today's blend is unchanged from the original recipe.
