I love cooking with fresh herbs! But like everyone else, life gets busy and the herbs go to waste before I can use them. Now, before they go bad, I dry them in the microwave. It is very easy to do.
1. Wash and dry your herbs.
2. Line a microwave safe plate with a paper towel.
3. Arrange your herbs in a single layer on the paper towel.
4. Microwave on high 1 to 3 minutes, turning the herbs over every 30 seconds until you can crumble them.
When cooking: 1 teaspoon of crushed dried herbs equals one tablespoon fresh herbs.
