Drying Herbs

Now that my herb garden has filled in nicely, I've started harvesting the herbs for drying.

Some herbs will dry well just by hanging them, such as oregano, rosemary and sage.  Others, like mint, parsley and basil maintain their colour and flavour better if you dry them faster.  You can use an oven set to 200F to do this.

  1. I harvested and dried my own lavender for my soap. I'm so proud of myself.
