Drying herbs

Got the herbs cut today for drying. Just cut the basil and lemon balm and that was all I would have room for on the drying screens. Was very hot outside so came into the kitchen to strip them from the stems and wash to remove any dust or bugs. Drained on towels and put them on screens to dry outside in the sun. And you guessed it, it started to rain. So now we have 2 large screens of herbs in the kitchen drying. Usually only takes a few days at room temperature to dry completely. If only I had more screens and sunshine I could cut all the varieties that need to be done right now. But that is just the "if" in the middle of life. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
