How To Dry Fresh Herbs

 


Try your hand at air-drying your bumper crop of fresh herbs or herbs from the market.

Here’s How:

  • Gently wash herbs and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Tie two to three stalks together.
  • Hang upside down in an airy, dry spot.
  • Herbs will dry in one to two weeks under favorable conditions.
  • When herbs are dry and crumbly, remove leaves from stems.
  • Crush leaves with a rolling pin or leave whole.
  • Pack in an airtight container or zip-top bag with air removed.
  • Use within 6 months.

Tips:

  • Pick best leaves just before herbs bloom.
  • Harvest in early morning as soon as dew has evaporated.
  • Herbs only hold their potency for about 6 months.
