Make Your Own Dried Herbs

This is a quick and easy method for drying seasonal herbs for use all year long.  I like to use it for oregano since it can sometimes be overpowering when it's fresh.
1.  Wash and remove stems.
2.  Place on a microwavable plate.

3.  Microwave in 1 minute increments until they feel dry and crumble in your hands (about 3-4 minutes for a single layer on a regular size dinner plate). The plate will be very hot so be careful when removing it. 

4.  Allow to cool, crumble and store.

Enjoy for up to 1 year.
