Drying Herbs: Hang in warm, dark, well-ventilated area until herbs are crisp(about 2 weeks). Store in a cool, dark area away from heat. Crumble herbs only as needed to retain the best possible flavor. A screen may also be used to dry any leaves not on a stem. Alternatively, herbs may be left in the fridge for several weeks to dry, this helps to retain the best color and flavor. Microwaving may cause the herbs to loose flavor from the high heat.
