Drying Herbs

Happy Wednesday – A few days ago we share an idea on how to grow herbs in your kitchen, today we are showing you how to dry those herbs you’re growing! and don’t forget you can always use them fresh!


Air dry –

Drying in the sun or outdoors. Cut the herbs when the dew has dried off them. Tie into a bundle with a rubber band. Keep the leaves and flowers facing downward. Hang somewhere on the porch or off a hanger in a spot that gets full sun. Dry outdoors inside a paper bag. Remove when dried.


Oven-dry –

Place herb leaves or seeds on a cookie sheet, 1 inch deep or less. Put herbs in an open oven on low heat – less than 180 degrees F – for 2-4 hours. To see if the herbs are dry, check to see if they leaves crumble easily.


Have an awesome day! More soon!
