Totka Description : Drying your own herbs isn't really difficult, and much of it is common sense. First, always harvest your herbs on a dry day, preferably with a few dry days being had beforehand. Do not pick herbs with dew on them, but do try to pick them early enough in the morning that the sun hasn't warmed them too much. To retain herb quality, the actual drying of the leaves needs to be done as quickly as possible. For soft-leafed herbs like Basil, lemon balm and mints, oven-drying is the best way to go. heat the oven to a low heat (200F), place the herbs in the oven, keep the oven door open and bake the herbs until they are dry. Usually a few hours, but do keep a close eye on your herbs because they can quickly go from dried herbs to burnt herbs. For soft, shrubby herbs you can tien them in bunches and hang them in a dry shady place like an attic, shed, or cupboard for a day or two. Make sure they have plenty of ventilation though, and are not near any strong odours.
