Herbs drying

My wife trimmed up her herb bed and had several things that were enough to dry and save. They are growing fast now!

We need to get a dehydrator or make a solar one because it takes a long time just sitting in the open air.

    Another option (though I don’t know if it’s very practical in the summertime) is to put them in the oven, on its verrry lowest temperature (~140*F, maybe). I haven’t tried it, myself, but I know of others who dry fruit and make jerky &etc. this way and it seems to work. Though I also wouldn’t want my oven on for hours on end (at any temperature!) during the summer 🙂
