Nothing makes a dish quite as yummy as herbs fresh from your own garden.  But if you’ve ever grown them, you know that when the growing season is over you will still have a lot left to harvest.  Keep your food flavorful all year ’round by drying your excess herbs with a hanging herb dryer like this one by Stephanie at The Crimson Owl.  If you have a bumper crop of herbs, she also shows how to add extra levels to the dryer so it will hold even more.  Bookmark this page for harvest time!  [how to make an herb drying rack]
