Herb Drying - Success!

My mother-in-law shared a technique for drying herbs from the garden. You lay the herbs on a layer of paper towel on a cookie sheet in the oven (cover the herbs with another layer of paper towel) then leave them in the oven overnight with the oven light on. Don't turn on the heat - just leave them in with the light on and they will dry right out.

I left them in for two days (I washed my herbs first before drying them) but it worked out really good! I dried oregano, parsley, and thyme!

I was surprised it worked so well. Keeps the herbs from getting dusty hanging up in my kitchen!
