How To Dry Herbs

Ohh herbs. So many plants with so many different healing properties. I loved that I was successful in growing herbs in my garden this year. There is nothing like picking fresh herbs and using them while cooking. One thing that I do over the summer is dry my herbs in order to use them throughout the fall and winter months. I want to share how easy it is to dry herbs with you today!

  1. Enjoy your herbs throughout the year!
