Re: [SCA-Herbalist] drying my basil leaves?
- Put them on a cake cooling rack, if you have any. You want to have air circulating around them to promote drying without decay.-- Galefridus

I just plucked about 20 leaves of basil out of my indoor planter to
stimulate more growth. I don't have any immediate need of the basil.
Is there an easy way to dry the leaves? Right now they are all on a
couple paper towels on paper plates sitting on my dining room table.

- You should also be able to freeze them in ice cube trays (with water.) Then, when you need them, you defrost them and they are all "new" again !
