Preserving Garden Herbs
Before the cold weather gets here I cut my herbs and preserve them. I have been using my fresh herbs all summer but now it’s time to preserve what is left. I preserve my herbs by dehydrating them and storing them in airtight containers. For the last two days I have dehydrated my sage, thyme and rosemary. I still have parsley to do….a LOT of parsley!
Last year I did a blog all about dehydrating herbs. It is a very informative blog about different methods of dehydrating herbs and which method is the best for certain herbs . Go ahead and check it out and see how simple it is to Preserve Garden Herbs.

After I dry my herbs, I remove the leaves
from the stems and crush them in a bag.
I will store my dried herbs in an
air tight container in a dark cupboard.
