How to Dry Herbs

My friend, Vicky, gave me some herbs.  I wasn’t sure what to do with them at first.  I received sage, oregano, and mint.  This was my first time tasting fresh mint and it is strong!  Actually, all of the herbs have a very intense flavour.  I decided to dry the herbs.  I didn’t want them to go to waste.

Vicky mentioned that Christine mentioned to her that drying herbs is easy!  Easy, you say?  Well, actually it’s extremely easy and I’m annoyed I never tried this before with fresh herbs.  You take the herbs, tie them with a string, hang them in a dry, cold room for a few days and voila you have dried herbs.

They really shrink!

Now I have dried herbs:)

      LOL I always did that too even when we had the plants! I thought drying them would be so complicated:P
