Aromas from the land of the Riviera,
on your tables... with love

Desiccate in the microwave

In the city, one knows, it is practically impossible to dry aromatics in the open air without "smoking them" with smog.  Personally, to avoid these problems, sometimes, to save time, we use the microwave.  Drying in the microwave is easy and takes only a few minutes.  It is sufficient to wash and dry the aromatics that you wish to dry, put them on a plate and then into the microwave at 700w for a variable time which depends on the type and quantity of aromatics .  Herbs with thicker leaves, like rosemary, require 2-3minutes, while Italian parsley for example takes only a minute.
Once the aromatics have dried well, you can crumble them easily by hand and they can be conserved in air tight jars.
