make : dried herbs

The lovely moderate weather has been so kind to my herb garden! To get the most out of it & to promote more growth, I snipped off some leaves last week to dry and use later.

Drying herbs is super-easy. I put my leaves into an old strawberry basket and leave them on my windowsill to dry in the sun. If you leave herbs outside, they can get morning dew on them and mold.

I leave mine on the stems, and when they’re totally dry, I crumble the leaves into these sweet spice jars that I received from Cortney of Petal and Posie Cakes.

Don’t herbs make you want to cook more?

xo, S.
