Description
You planted your herb garden, it has blossomed into a beautiful little ecosystem of culinary delights and self-healing, and now you’re ready to begin herb crafting. So… now what? This class takes you from the herbs in your garden (or the fresh herbs purchased at the grocer) and introduces you to a variety of ways to preserve the goodness of those herbs for later: quick dry, slow dry, vinegar/canned, freezing (and the benefits and downfalls of each method); also, how to wash, dry, and hang for the least amount of mildew. How long do herbs last in these various preserved states? How do you know when to throw them out?
