Above is a video link on how to dry oregano. Every year my trusty oregano comes up, producing a mountain of lovely tasting leaves. This year, I’m getting wise, instead of wasting all that lovely pizza herb, I’m drying as much as I can now, to use during the cold winter months. Stored correctly, oregano should last up to 6 months. So by the time I’m running out of the dried stuff, the fresh oregano should be growing strong again.
If stored in labelled pretty-shaped dark glass jars, decorated with ribbon, it would also help make up a Christmas food gift basket or boxes for loved ones.
