As the summer gets hotter the plants in our garden are struggling to survive, and that includes the herbs. I don’t want to lose any of the herbs so as they start getting big I try to harvest them.
This is just a few sprigs of oregano. Once I have cut the herb I put them in a dark cool spot until they dry.
After the herbs have dried I separate the leaves from the stems.
The dried leaves are then put in the food processor which chops them up really well.
This oregano is now ready to be put in a jar and saved for use when the fresh herb is not available.
Of course, I will use the fresh as long as I have some available.
