If you’ve ever wonder how to dry herbs, it’s easier than you might think.  And it’s the perfect way to preserve them and enjoy them all winter long.

This fall has been so nice, and so warm (she said with fingers crossed not wanting to jinx anything) that last week there was still time to clip a few herbs from my garden.

I ran out of dried sage a little while ago, and realized I had better pick some and hang it up to dry for my sage and onion stuffing on Christmas day.

It’s very simple to dry your own herbs.

Collect Your Herbs and Tie In Bundles

Just clip some herbs from your garden, and tie in small bundles.  While I was getting the sage, I thought I may as well dry a little thyme and oregano too, since winter is coming.

Hang To Dry

Once you’ve tied your bundles, just find somewhere to hang them.  It will take a few weeks for them to dry out.

How Do You Know When They’re Dry

You’ll be able to tell when the herbs are dry by touching them -they won’t be flexible anymore.

Storing Dried Herbs

Store your dried herbs in an airtight container and enjoy them in your cooking all winter.
