Microwave Dried Herbs
plain paper or parchment paper
Make sure your herbs are clean and completely DRY.
Working with one herb at a time, lay them out in a single layer on a piece of paper that will fit in your microwave. If possible, remove the leaves from the stems.
Microwave on full power for anywhere from 30 - 90 seconds, depending on your herbs and your particular microwave. (see chart above)
Check the herbs and if they feel crisp they are done, but if they feel soft, microwave them for a few more seconds. Don't over-do it or they will turn brown and burn.
Let the dried herbs cool down and then crush them with clean hands, and package them in small jars or plastic bags.
Store in a cool dark place and use within 6 months.
