How to Dry Herbs in the Microwave

By:

Its that time of year for some of us that our gardens start to disappear.  Every year I plant a bunch of herbs.  There’s nothing like having fresh herbs when you need them.  But the weather is turning cold and most of my herbs will not survive a frost.  I harvest them, freeze some but I also dry some of them.

I’ve tried hanging them to dry.. but it takes a long time and I’ve never had a whole lot of luck doing that.  But you can dry them in the microwave!  Even if you buy a bunch of herbs from the store, you may use a little for a recipe but what do you do with the rest?  Here’s your answer!  Dry them.  Its fast, its easy and the herbs keep their flavor.

I have dried parsley, basil, tarragon, rosemary, oregano, chives… and yes, catnip for my kitties.  Have to keep them happy too :)

Drying Herbs in the Microwave

Directions:

1.  Place a few sprigs or 1/2 – 1 cup of leaves between two paper towels.
2.  Place in microwave and heat on high for 1 – 1 1/2 mins. or until herbs are dry and crumbly.  Timing may vary with different herbs.
3.  Store dried herbs in labeled jars.

Enjoy!!
