Herbs, Microwave Dry or Freeze

PhotobucketIt's growing or buying time for fresh herbs, then drying or freezing for future use.  I grow Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, Oregano, Chives, Fennel, and Parsley in tubs or pots.

In summer, Basil does well outside, but the rest of the year I keep a plant or two indoors near a window and snip for garnish on salads or to flavor recipes.

For a bulk quantity of Basil, I harvest and make a batch of pesto and freeze in mini-muffin or regular muffin tins, then store in a freezer bag.

Thyme, Oregano and Rosemary grow well year round on the outside porch but need pruning or pinching back, so I harvest, wash, pat dry and store in freezer bags for use in soups, stews, and sauces.  They keep their color well, too.

For Fennel leafs, Parsley and Chives, I dry using the microwave.  Wash and pat dry herbs, place herbs between paper towels in batches and microwave on high for one to two minutes, checking for dryness after a minute, then adding 15 more seconds at a time, depending on the quantity and type of herb.  It never takes me more than two minutes.

It's done when you check its dry or brittle texture and feel no more moisture.

Dried Chives

This method evaporates water in the herb, which dampens the towel then dries without over heating or cooking the herb. It quickly dries herbs compared to using an oven and herbs retain their color and flavor.

Store dried herbs in jars with lids and keep in a closed cabinet away from light.  They're perfect for recipes and garnishes.

Frozen Parsley
I've done Oregano both frozen and dried, but prefer frozen, and like Parsley both ways.

  7. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Aluya a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.

  11. I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had HERPES virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR omohan cured them from HERPES virus, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 9 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR omohan because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR omohan via dromohanherbalmedicine@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348164816038                                                                             https://www.fb.com/dromohanherbalmedicin
