In Pittsburgh the growing season is just about over and it’s time to start drying herbs indoors.  Basil, parsley, sage, chives and thyme are just some of the fresh herbs that I’ll be bringing inside to make my owned dried seasoning to use over the fall and winter months.  Whether you garden, or not, you can make your own dried hers.  All you have to do is purchase the herbs from your local grocer and begin the process of drying your herbs.  I’ll be showing you how to make your own dried herbs in 5 minutes or less.
