How to dry herbs in the microwave....

Drying herbs in the microwave is quick and simple! 

 I wash and dry my herbs and take the leaves of the stems.  I separate the herbs and dry them in the microwave on paper plates for one minute, then I toss them about and microwave for one more minute!

They should be "crispy dry":

The Christmas Tree Shoppe has these cute little spice jars, with a chalkboard label:

I mixed up my herbs and place them in these jars:

Adding a little bow to the knob with the chalk attached makes for a cute little gift!

I will be bringing this to a friend who is inviting me over to her home for lunch!

  1. This is so good to know! We have a lot of basil and oregano this year and I definitely want to store it!


  2. This makes drying herbs so quick and easy! I have a bunch of Tulsi Basil drying in my car right now ;o) My car smells wonderful!

  3. Seriously, I never knew this could be done! I have thrown out basil before because I couldn't use it fast enough!

  4. What a great trick. Thanks!
