干草药

你做饭的时候喜欢用香草吗?  我喜欢——尤其是罗勒和牛至. 我也欣赏他们是多么容易成长. 

如何种植和干燥自己的药草

I 成长 basil, oregano, rosemary, 圣人 and thyme in my garden.  To be honest, I don’t use a lot of fresh herbs and I really should.  我倾向于用干香草代替.

While I do like to use dried herbs when I cook – I don’t like to pay $3+ dollars for a tiny container.  所以,与其买干草药,不如买干草药
在杂货店,我自己做.  

It is very easy to 干草药 and they make great and inexpensive gifts. Herbs are best when they are air-dried – which is the method that retains their flavor best.

我是这样做的:

如何种植和干燥自己的药草

– I harvest my herbs, usually before they flower, for best flavor. In my herb container, t在这里 is basil, dill, oregano, rosemary, 圣人 and thyme 成长ing.    

– Pick your herbs in the morning and wash and dry them.  扔掉所有变色的叶子.  

-用绳子或麻线, tie your herbs into small bundles (this is especially important for basil, 因为它的叶子里有大量的水分).  Wrap the string a few times around each bundle to keep them from falling out as they dry.

香草需要挂在室内晾干.  Hang them in an area out of the sun in an area with good air circulation – I used our garage.  

干草药

You can hang them from a clothes rack that you use for drying your clothes, 或者你可以把它们绑在任何东西上.  Laying herbs on paper towels and placing them by a de-humidifier to dry is another method to 干草药.

**保护你的药草免受尘土的侵袭, you can place paper lunch bags over each bundle – to do this make a hole in the bottom of each lunch bag and thread the cotton string through it before attaching the string to whatever you are hanging your herbs from.  It is okay if the herbs stick out the bottom of the bag – it’s the top which need protection from dust.

这取决于你住在哪里, drying herbs can take as little as a week in a 干燥的气候 up to 4 weeks in more humid climates.
