The simplest solution for preserving herbs is copying what humans have done for millennia: hanging them up to dry. Tie your herbs into small bundles using twist ties so you can tighten them as a stem shrink. Place muslin or a mesh or brown bag with a few holes in it around the bundle and fastened it at the top. Any warm dry place that is not your kitchen should work as a location. Once the herbs are properly dried – they’re brittle to the touch and crumble easily – it’s time to store them in sealed glass containers. You may be inclined to grind them all first, but in tact herbs maintain their character far longer than ground ones!
