How to Dry Herbs in Minutes

May 23, 2017

 

 

Hello, friends! Do you have a ton of fresh herbs growing in your garden?  'Tis the season for harvesting herbs like rosemary, oregano, thyme, and parsley.  It's amazing how quickly some of those suckers can grow!  Rather than hanging the herbs to dry, I have a quick and easy way to dry out your herbs in just minutes!
 

Wash the herbs and pat them dry with a paper towel.  Remove the stems from the herbs and place the leaves on a dry paper towel.  

 

Fold the paper towel in half and place it on a plate.

 

Microwave the herbs in 30-second increments until the leaves have dried out completely.  This can take anywhere between 2 and 5 minutes depending on the plant.

 

You'll know the herbs are done drying when you're able to crush the herbs with your fingers.  Store the dried herbs in an airtight container until you're ready to use.

 

It's seriously that easy!  Can you believe it?  It's so much quicker than hanging the herbs to dry and waiting 97 years for them to be ready.
