1.Cut healthy branches from your herb plants.

2.Remove any dry or diseased leaves

3.Shake gently to remove any insects.

4.If necessary, rinse with cool water and pat dry with paper towels. Wet herbs will mold and rot.

5.Remove the lower leaves along the bottom inch or so of the branch.

6.Bundle 4 - 6 branches together and tie as a bunch. You can use string or a rubber band. The bundles will shrink as they dry and the rubber band will loosen, so check periodically that the bundle is not slipping. Make small bundles if you are trying to dry herbs with high water content.

7.Punch or cut several holes in a paper bag. Label the bag with the name of the herb you are drying.

8.Place the herb bundle upside down into the bag.

9.Gather the ends of the bag around the bundle and tie closed. Make sure the herbs are not crowded inside the bag.

10.Hang the bag upside down in a warm, airy room.

11. Check in about two weeks to see how things are progressing. Keep checking weekly until your herbs are dry and ready to store.

Cut the herbs in small pieces and put them in sun light. The best place to dry herbs is the roof of the house. On roof there are less chances of getting the herbs dirty by dust. There are several benefits of herbs on health.

For thousands of years, drying was the only way to keep herbs from spoiling. It's easy, inexpensive and healthier than artificial flavoring methods because dried herbs do not contain chemical additives.
Thanks for the post!

You may use the Microwave to dry your herbs for long-lasting intense flavor.
Microwave can very efficiently case water to evaporate from your herbs—especially because they are so thin-while leaving flavorful compounds and colorful pigments mostly intact. Herbs that would end up brown or gray and flavorless by the time they're done drying in the oven or through hanging will retain their bright green color and much of their aroma after the minute or so it takes to dry them in the microwave.
