Drying herbs in salt


How to prepare

To dry herbs in salt, take the fresh leaves and place on a bed of kosher salt in a flat bottomed container. Put a layer of salt on top of the herbs, then more leaves, more salt, etc. Leave these in a cool dry place for a week or two or until leaves are dry but do not quite crack when handled. The salt will leach out the water from the plant and will impart some salty flavor to the herb leaves. Grind these in your food processor or herb mill.
