It’s harvest season and that means drying herbs! There are some great drying racks on the market, but you can also dry herbs at home, here are a few hacks I use:
Lay on wire racks:
Search your home for wire racks to use, I’m using racks from my power air oven. You may also consider wire shelves, dish racks, etc., Clean & disinfect the rack & lay herbs flat onto it, then store in a cool, dark place & make sure they receive good ventilation.
Hang to dry:
Tie small bundles with twine & hang upside down to dry. Leave enough string to hang or you can use clothespins or chip clips. Keep out of sunlight to preserve flavor & hang in a dark, dry spot. I have mine in my pantry closet.
Hang in a bag
Place herbs upside down in a mesh or paper bag and hang to dry.
Or, you can dry in a basket, a food dehydrator, or an oven & microwave.
You can also find many DIY’s online to make your own drying rack.
Happy Harvest & Herb Drying!💚
