Dry Your Own Herbs

If you use a lot of herbs in cooking or in herbal remedies you can grow and dry your own herbs at home. I love drying my own herbs because I know that I never use chemicals when they are growing and I know how I dry them and that they are always clean from the time I pick them until they are dried and put up. I like the sense of accomplishment I get when I want some oregano or basil for my spaghetti sauce and can reach into the pantry and get the herbs I grew, harvested and dried and put in the pantry by myself instead of herbs from the store that I have no clue how they were grown or how long they have been sitting around in warehouses and on store shelves.

  1. Are there any herbs that require special drying methods? What about Onions and Garlic and then an article on drying more dense veg and fruits would be very informative.

  2. I think for onions and garlic you would need to either dry them in the oven or a dehydrator. We have plenty of posts to help you get started. Just type dehydrating into the search bar at the top of the page.
