Drying Fresh Herbs
When you buy a bunch of fresh, sturdy herbs like rosemary, thyme,oregano or sage and need only a bit, here's how to save the rest: Wrap kitchen twine around the stems, creating a loop.
Hang the bunch, upside down, in a cool, dry place. Most herbs will take from four to10 days to dry. Once they're crisp, pick leaves from stems and place in a tightly sealed jar. Label and date the jar. Store in a cool, dark place; dried herbs will keep for about six months.
