How to dry herbs

OreganoIt’s amazing how quickly things grow in the garden. The herb garden is particularly fast growing and plants that looked neat and attractive just a couple of weeks ago are now bursting out of their allotted space. This is the time to cut them back hard and save the best leaves for drying for use later in the year. In the past few years I have tied up bunches and hung them in the boiler room to dry…

This year I made use of the warm weather to dry them quickly in the warm wind outside. It’s really easy to do and there’s nothing quite like using herbs that you have grown yourself to add flavour to your special recipes. This is Golden Oregano and it’s brilliant for Italian dishes.
