Found a Drying Rack under the Stairs and Put it to Use
Well, I've run out of time to do this post justice. The clock is ticking. It was a beautiful summer like day here. I did get some things accomplished. My tarragon was just pathetic this year, but I managed to collect a tiny bit and put it in a pint jar with some white wine vinegar. You see tarragon loses its flavor when it is dried. So if you cut it and put it in vinegar, you get flavored vinegar and you can use the tarragon from the vinegar as you would use fresh. Genius! I cut the last of the 'Rober's Lemon Rose' scented geranium and my pathetic pineapple sage to dry in paper bags. We will see if the pineapple sage holds up. It loses its smell once dried, but one can hope. Then I went about collecting some tea herbs, mints, spear and orange, anise hyssop and lemon balm. I've got one more dry day to cut other herbs. I'll dry these and make tea bags soon. I found this little booklet I bought and it has the easiest recipes that I will share. Well, it's a bit crazy with Hurricane Sandy may be hitting us early next week! The Herbal Husband is coming home Saturday if he can get out of Florida! It is going to be a wild one! Will talk to you later.
