Drying Herbs

One of our preservation tasks is drying herbs.  Ken took an old crib and made a series of open shelves in a part of the hose that gets no dirct sunlight, but plenty of ventilation.

Once dry, I put herbs in jars and watch them to make sure there is no residual humidity to make them mold.  After a couple days I put them in the pantry with label.  I transfer to small jars as needed to keep them potent.  The more exposure to air and light, the faster they lose their punch
