8568Re: [SCA-Herbalist] drying my basil leaves?
- Mar 10, 2013I had very good results using the microwave -- they even kept their color!
Put a paper towel on a plate. Spread herbs (single layer) on it. Cover
with another paper towel.
Microwave for 30 seconds. If they're not crisp, give them another 30
seconds. And another, if they need it. (Parsley will be done the first
time, but basil is juicier).
When they cool, put them in a jar in a cool darkish place.
The kitchen will smell wonderful!
