Tip of the Day: Drying Herbs

While they are abundant in your garden, don’t forget to pick and dry some for those winter months when the garden isn’t quite so green. Drying herbs is quite simple.

Start with just picked herbs. Rinse, then dry thoroughly (I like to put them through the salad spinner).

Using kitchen twine, tie the stems together then hang in a cool, dry place. Once dry, store the herbs in an air-tight container for up to six months.
