Preserve the color and freshness of your herb harvest by microwave drying. Preserving your herb harvest can easily be accomplished by drying them in the microwave.
It may be just the ticket in humid conditions that make air-drying almost impossible, and for herbs such as basil that tend to lose both color and flavor with traditional drying methods. The key is to monitor the process closely and to adjust microwaving time and power level according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your microwave.
