How to dry herbs
- Trim cut the plant
- Rinse the plant
- Use string to wrap and paper clip to hang herb
- label the herb if necessary (often difficult to tell apart if drying multiple herbs)
- Even store bought herbs can be dried. This is a nice way to store fresh herbs before you lose them.
How to store herbs
Once completely dried store in mason jars and keep out of direct light.
I prefer not to tear apart the plant at this stage because the herbs hold their freshness better.
Leaves, stems, and flowers are edible and hold flavor! Nothing should be wasted.
