Dried herbs are so expensive in stores! Save your money and dry them yourself. Here are 3 simple steps to drying herbs at home. It’s very quick and easy.
First, you’ll need to gather the following items:
- Butcher or craft twine
Next, Grab a handful of your favorites herbs and tie them with twine. Today, I have thyme, oregano, dill, rosemary, and basil.
Finally, hang the herbs in an airy, sunny spot in your home. You could tape the twine to a wall as well.
Allow the herbs to dry for 2-3 weeks. The herbs are ready when the leaves are crispy and fall apart to the touch. Store dried herbs in an air-tight container. The herbs will last up to 6 months if not sooner! How easy was that?!
If you have a herb garden and don’t know what to do with the abundance of herbs, try drying them. You could do this year after year and save tons of money!
Note: Remember that dried herbs are more potent that fresh herbs. Use less dried herbs in your recipes compared to fresh herbs.
This century old method is best you guys. All natural, quick, and easy. Give it a go! Enjoy!
