1. Hanging herbs to dry - this process works best with low moisture herbs including dill, marjoram, rosemary, summer savoury and thyme. Herbs with high moisture content will grow mould, so try the following options for herbs with high moisture content.
2. Oven Drying Herbs - spread the leaves or stems on a tray. Dry the herbs out at 80C for approximately one or two hours (depending on the moisture content of the herbs) and leave the over door slightly open.
3. Dry herbs using an electric dehydrator - preheat the dehydrator to 35C or slightly higher for more humid areas. Place herbs in a single layer or a tray and dry for one to four hours (again depending on moisture content).
TIP Remember to check your herbs regularly when drying them out in the oven or dehydrator! You’ll know that your herbs are dried when their stems are brittle and the leaves crumble when you rub them between your fingers.
