Drying herbs.

Our Mother’s Day tradition is to head to the garden shop and pick out our favourite flowers and herbs to plant outside.  We fill the pots on the deck with whites and purples and we  fill wooden cranberry crates with the herbs we use the most.

Well, it turns out this year our herbs have decided to grow and grow and grow and we can’t keep up with the eating of them.  So, I decided to try drying them.  I figured it can’t be too hard.  Can it?

I picked some stems, gave them a good shake to fling out any creepy crawlies, tied the ends up with twine and hung them upside down, as per internet instructions.

And now I guess I wait!

Have any of you dried herbs before?  Any tips for a newbie?

With any luck we’ll be eating rosemary chicken all winter long!
