Drying Herbs

Hey guys!

I love cooking with fresh herbs, they make a huge difference between a meal being bland or more-ish, but when I don't have the opportunity to grow my own I can never use up the supermarket bought bunches before they go off. So I googled around and it turns out there's a couple of super easy ways of saving fresh herbs for later, whether you've bought them or want to preserve your herb garden before it goes to seed. 'Cause these things are better in your belly than in the compost.
Drying and freezingCollapse )

Trying this opened my eyes to how easy it is to cut down on wastage, and I'm sure there's a lot of simple, obvious things I could be doing to make the most of the food in my kitchen. If you have any tips on drying, preserving, freezing, etc feel free to share them around! :D
