Drying Herbs in 5 Minutes

So, last summer I read on pinterest that it is possible to dry herbs (in small portions) in just five minutes. I'm happy to say I tried to and it IS possible! Who would have thought that it could be so simple.

Just line out a small portion of whichever herb you need dried on a paper towel and place in the microwave. Heat in 30 second intervals, checking on them each time, and arrange on the paper towel. It usually only takes a minute to a minute and a half to dry small batches. Once the herb is completely dried and crispy, it is ready to be stored!

It's really simple and works great for those climates that are extremely humid. I've tried this method with rosemary, basil, parsley, and mint and it has worked every time!
