I love herbs, but I don't always have a use for them while they are fresh, so I dry them. Some people like to use a food dehydrator, but you need a lot of herbs to fill one of those, and not everyone owns one.
I have found this method to be very quick, convenient and reliable, and for small batches this is the way to go. Now keep in mind everyone's microwave works a little bit differently. So you might need to adjust the amount of time to get your herbs dry for your particular microwave.
Arrange the herbs in a single layer on a paper towel or piece of waxed paper on the floor of the microwave.
Microwave the herbs on high for 2 minutes, check the herbs, then turn the paper towel or paper.
Microwave another 2 minutes or until the herbs are crisp and dry.
Store them in a glass jar or sandwich bag, with all the air sucked out, and label them.
Home dried herbs can last very well for up to a year or more before they start to loose their oils and flavor. Keep them in a dark, cool place to keep them fresh.
