The Pleasure of Fresh-Dried Herbs
By Susan Scofield on in Uncategorized with No Comments
I’ve been bringing in the herbs in preparation for winter. Each fall, I do two things with my herb garden: I prune and dry the fresh plants while they are still in the Earth, then I dig the plants up and nurture under some grow lights all winter, giving me fresh herbs all winter long.
I dried one of my favorite herbs — rosemary — then went to store it in my pantry. Imagine my surprise at the difference in color, scent and, I’m sure, flavor, when I compared it to the organic rosemary I bought at my favorite co-op. It was gray. Take a look at the difference.
