Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Here's a way to ‘dry’ herbs from the garden that is quick and retains the color and flavor of the fresh herb.
    * Collect herbs and rinse in cool water and allow them to dry completely.
    * Layer a microwave safe container with paper towels.
    * Place a single layer of herbs on paper towels.
    Microwave on high for one to three minutes, checking every 60 seconds.
    Herbs are done when they are dry to the touch and still colorful. They may be stored in an airtight container for future use.
