Re: [Apicius] Drying rue?
- I've dried rue just by tying and hanging it. The potency drops pretty markedly on drying, but it still retains the basic flavor.

But the recipes will probably use less than 1% of the rue, what do we do with the rest? Rue salad? (Just kidding). I have a storage jar I can store it in but first I have to dry it. Does anyone have experience drying rue? Should I remove the small branches from the thick branches like you do with parsley? Is it even *safe* to do so? Should I spread them on paper towels, or on the kitchen counter, or dry them in the oven or what? :-/
