Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh herbs
  • twist ties
  • brown paper bag
  • string or shoe laces
  • mason jars
  • marker
  • labels (optional)

The process is simple, start by cleaning and removing any bad stems from your herbs. Then you go on to tying them into batches with twist ties. Make holes into the bottom of the brown bags, right in the center. You are going to thread your batches of herbs through these holes, so that the stems stick out.

Find a nice area to tie either a piece of string, or even just shoe laces and create a line of sorts. It is recommended you keep away from the sun, inside will do just fine. Hang your paper bags upside down with the herbs inside. Now it is just a waiting game, in about 14 days your herbs should be dry. Store in a mason jar, in a cool dry place. Don’t forget to label your jars! 🙂
