How to dry fresh herbs in the microwave … kitchen helper
If you buy fresh herbs you know that it’s hard to use up the whole bunch before they start to go bad. The good news is that you can save yourself money and add lots of flavour to your dishes by drying fresh herbs in the microwave. All you need is some paper towel. Simply lay the herbs in a single layer on top of the paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds. Take them out, check them and turn them over on the paper towel and return to the microwave for another 20 seconds. Repeat this for about two minutes or until the herbs feel dry. If properly dried you should be able to pinch the leaves and they will fall from the stem.
