Add It!: Drying Herbs

A summer bounty of herbs is a good time to look out for your future self and dry your fresh herbs so you have flavor to last you through the winter. Why pay for it when you can easily do it on your own?! Go ahead with your money-saving self! 😀 I used Thai Basil but the same applies for any of your favorites: mint, thyme, rosemary, basil, oregano, marjoram, tarragon, chives etc….

A simple 4-steps will have you all set for winter cooking!

Step 1: Wash herbs and pat dry.

Step 2: Lay herbs on baking sheet (preferably lined with Silpat or parchment paper).
