How to Oven Dry Fresh Herbs

Great idea! I think these would make great DIY gifts!

We cut our herbs from the garden and brought them inside right away. The best time to cut herbs is in the morning before the plants have been stressed by hot sun.
We rinsed them, carefully shook as much water off into the sink as possible, very gently patted them dry with clean towels, then laid them flat on the towels until they were completely dry. Note: it’s important to not bruise the leaves while rinsing and drying, because bruising releases the oils (flavors) of the plant.
We removed the leaves from the stems. This is such a perfect job for little hands! My girls loved helping, and their hands are the perfect size for removing tiny leaves.
We placed the leaves in single layers on baking sheets. (I use these silicone matson my baking sheets.)
Each tray of herbs went into the oven (middle rack,) heated to 175 degrees F. I put 2 trays in the oven at a time.
The key is to vent the oven door (I placed a dish towel in the door to prop it open slightly.) If the herbs truly bake, their essential oils are destroyed and the flavor deteriorates.
The parsley and oregano trays were in the oven for 1 hour until they were dried. Basil took a bit longer, at 1 hour and 20 minutes. You’ll want to keep a very close eye on the herbs while they’re drying.
You’ll know your herbs are completely dry when you can crumble them between

With just the right hint of lemon and garlic this vinaigrette comes together in 5 minutes in a mason jar (if you have one) or any container with a lid. It will leave you craving more salad!!


Yields: ½ cup

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 lemon, juiced
2 cloves garlic, smashed with side of your knife then peeled*
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
3 pinches of salt
10-15 grinds black pepper


  1. Add all ingredients to a mason jar or any type of container with a top. Cover and shake vigorously until combined. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
  2. Cover and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week. Stir before serving.
*the garlic flavor gets stronger the longer the vinaigrette sits, so if serving the vinaigrette immediately, you can add minced or pressed garlic, otherwise, smashed garlic works great here as it gradually flavors the vinaigrette.
