When you go to the grocery store, do you buy fresh herbs
or do you head to the spice aisle? Not all of our recipes call for fresh herbs, so many people just buy the dried herbs, but it is so much easier to make your own herb garden
so that you can have fresh herbs all year around. Cheaper too!
You can have freshly dried herbs all winter long when you make your own herb dryer
. To make the dryer, you will need recycled metal fly screens, four trays, pull handles, and a crate or pine frame. You can paint the frame with Estapol paint so that it will look attractive wherever you set the herb dryer.
You'll want to place the frame where you can observe it on a continual basis, as herbs dry fairly quickly. Gather your herbs in the morning, and place them in airtight containers when they are dry. You'll have freshly dried herbs all winter long, and save lots of money in the process. Don't forget to make your own basil butter
