Rinse off any dirt from freshly picked rosemary. Pat the rosemary dry with a paper towel.
Place the rosemary on a plate lined with paper towels and put in a 600 W microwave for 3-5 minutes to dry out.
Once the moisture has evaporated, scrape along the rosemary stems to remove the leaves. Be careful not to microwave the rosemary for too long.
By the way, you can use a dried fruit maker as well, but this method takes more time.
Story Behind this Recipe
Thanks for trying out my recipe.
Store the dried rosemary along with some dessicant in a jar. You could use the rosemary for getting rid of the smell of meat, mix it in with potato or bread-based cooking, but you can also add it to herbal teas and oils.
You can put any leftover rosemary in tea bags and use it for an herbal bath. (It supposedly promotes healthy blood circulation and beautiful skin.)
