Before I left for the Cape, I cut my oregano plant down to the ground.
You probably know that I do not have a green thumb, but I am lucky with herbs. It grew back quite quickly:
Today I cut the herb back again….
…and decided to dry the herbs.
I stripped the leaves off the stems...
…and dried them in the microwave, one minute at a time, for 3 minutes:
I placed some of the dried oregano in plastic zip bags...
…and placed that into a paper bag...
…adding a label and a paper parasol as a closure:
A cute little gift for neighbors!
