No dehydrator, no problem! Did you know that all you need to dehydrate herbs is your microwave? I’m SERIOUS! If you’re like me, you hate throwing away extra fresh herbs because if you bought them at the grocery store they cost an arm and a leg! Or, if you have a garden you may want to preserve some of that yummy cilantro or basil for the fall and winter. This way preserves so much of the flavor AND color. It’s awesome! (Go ahead…I know what you’re wanting to ask and the answer is NO. I don’t purchase freeze-dried herbs. To me, they all smell like fish food so what’s the point? I like my herb garden and dehydrating much better!)
THE EASY WAY TO DEHYDRATE HERBS
- Wash and dry your herbs.
- Place herbs on a paper towel (it will stick to a plate…bad…like you’ll have to scrub for hours…trust me, don’t do it!)
- Microwave in 30 second intervals until the herb is dry.
- Store in an air tight container.
Can you believe it? That’s it! SUPER EASY!
