HOW TO DRY HERBS IN THE OVEN
HOW TO DRY HERBS IN THE OVEN
1
Wash and rinse herbs carefully. Get rid of the excess moisture. Pat dry. Let it air-dry for 30-60 minutes. Pat dry once more. Place the tray in the oven at low temperature, best to be under 200ºF/95ºC (higher temperatures can cause the mint to brown and “cook”). Depending on the temperature, this process will take a different amount of time.

Pour water into a saucepan or saucepan and bring it to a boil. Once the water boils, turn the heat down. Wait until you see that the water has no activity, including no boiling or bubbling. Add all of your herbs and stir to make sure they are all well saturated from the hot water. Put a lid on the pot or saucepan and let the herbs steep for 5-15 minutes, depending on the desired strength of the herbal tea. After the steeping time, remove the pot or saucepan from the heat and strain the solids from the liquid with a sieve over a heat-resistant bowl or a large heat-resistant measuring cup. Serve Lavender flower tea with honey and sliced lemon.
