Cook's Notes

Buying Dried Herbs: High-quality dried herbs are just as potent as fresh herbs, and are generally available in bulk at natural-foods stores and in specialty herb stores.

This recipe calls for dried herbs (not powdered dried herbs), and requires these basic tools of the trade: a kitchen scale; a fine mesh strainer; large glass jars with an airtight seal; a teapot with lid, or mason jar.
