Dry Your Own Herbs

Everyday Food, Volume 25 September 2005

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.
