A quick and easy way for Drying Herbs. Freshly dried herbs are the next best thing to fresh.
Today was the day that I officially gave up on my garden. The herbs are always the last to come out. They hang in there and even survive some pretty cool evenings. Drying herbs will guarantee you have fresh herb flavors all winter long.Freshly dried herbs are wonderful. When you open their container you can smell their savory aroma. You don’t get that much with store bought. They are great in any dish that you would use fresh if you had them. The herbs that I grow and dry are parsley, rosemary and thyme, but you could do this with many others.
- Fresh herbs such as parsley rosemary and thyme
- Wash and drain fresh herbs.
- Remove stems and place leaves on a paper towel. Cover with another paper towel, and microwave for 30 second intervals, until dried.
- Lightly crush and store in an air tight container such as a ziplock bag or covered container.
It may take a little time, but it is worth it. You will thank yourself all winter!
