When you buy a bunch of fresh herbs and need only a bit, here's how to save the rest.
How It's Done
Wrap a piece of kitchen twine around the stems, creating a loop. Hang the bunch, upside down, in a cool, dry place. Most herbs will take from four to ten days to dry. Once they're crisp, pick leaves from stems, and place in a tightly sealed jar. Label and date.
Store in a cool, dark place; dried herbs will keep for about six months.
Note: Use this technique to dry sturdy herbs, such as rosemary, thyme, oregano, and sage.
