Drying Herbs

I love using herbs, both fresh and dried. Sometimes a seasoning blend like the ubiquitous jar of "Italian Seasoning" is nice and convenient, but I also love learning the idiosyncrasies of each individual herb and using that knowledge to shape the flavor of a dish.

Fresh herbs aren't always available so I keep a good stock of dried herbs in my cupboard. Some of them are store-bought, but some I've dried myself. I took the opportunity to add to my stock of home-dried herbs this week after receiving a bag of assorted herbs in the CSA box.
