Drying Herbs In A Desert Is Easy

... even if it's a coastal desert like San Diego.

Our oregano and rosemary have become weeds. I offered to dry some for friends and yesterday it hit 105 here. I cut some, washed it off and then put it on cookie sheets on top of our spa cover. I didn't bother to shake off the excess water. It evaporated in 20 minutes and by the end of the day, the oregano and rosemary were thoroughly dry and ready to give away.

The cookie sheets hit 150 degrees. They were so hot that I needed to pick them up with a towel and that was at the end of the day. I can only imagine how hot they were around noon. Yowsers!

Mmm. Delicious spaghetti sauces are on the way!
