How to Dry Fresh Herbs in the Oven

Drying and storing your fresh herbs is a great way to retain their flavor so you can enjoy them year round. Drying herbs in the oven only takes about an hour and it's so easy. 
Do you have an abundance of herbs growing in your garden? Today I want to show you an easy method to dry fresh herbs and preserve their flavor for months. Each year I plant an herb garden and we enjoy fresh herbs right out of the backyard throughout the season. It doesn't take long for herb overload to set in, so you will have to find a way to preserve them. 

There are 2 methods for drying herbs. You can tie them together and hang them up to air dry naturally. Which is a good method, but it takes up space as well as time. The other method is oven drying herbs which is the quickest and my preferred method to dry herbs.

Happy Tuesday friends!!!  

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and a nice summer thus far? It's Newsletter time again and in this month's issue of My Texas Table it's all about preserving summer fruits by making homemade jams, jelly or preserves! 

There's nothing better than homemade jam or jelly. Once you start making your own, you'll ditch the store-bought stuff all together. Plus homemade jam and jellies are a great way to preserve and enjoy the flavor of summer throughout the year.

Easy Lasagna Freezer Meal

A simple Lasagna made in freezer friendly disposable pans! Cook once, eat twice.
Freezer meals are wonderful to have on hand, especially if unexpected guests drop by or when you're just too busy to cook. My family loves easy freezer meals, but of course I love them the most. I mean, who doesn't love having dinner in arms reach. Sure, they take a bit of time to prepare, but in the end it's so worth it.
