Herb drying

Leave a comment

Here it is: my ultra high-tech, herb drying system extraordinaire for 2011.

Three bunches of oregano, ready to dry out on top of the fridge for a couple weeks.  When they’re done, I’ll pick something else to dry. Doing it piecemeal this year instead of all in one shot, like I did in 2010. A detail of the twistie-tie and wood handle system:

This is the second batch of oregano I’ve dried, so I can report it works pretty well. Keeping it on top of the refrigerator ensures that I don’t forget about it.  We’ve also started drying some chamomile flowers for tea, and plan to dry quite a bit more mint this year in hopes of making our very own permaculture tea this winter.
