Sun Dried

Tuesday, June 16, 2009
I’ve always waited for the end of the summer to dry my herbs indoors (see here) … but I don’t know why!  Here’s how I did a bunch of drying this week outside, in the sun.  It was so nice and quick, each batch was done in one day:
Sun Dried
  1. Oregano
  2. Cut and laid out on cooling rack in a sunny spot.
  3. Window screen mesh (stapled to frame) on top so it doesn’t blow away as it dries.
  4. Bottled, labeled and packed with oil and vinegar in a bucket for a gift.

  2. Now...why haven't I ever tried drying in the sun instead of using my dehydrater. Bet the flavor is better if it's sun-dried too!. Thanks for this tip / reminder.
