How to make dried basil

This is made while you sleep!!

Preheat oven to 170 F. Place fresh basil on cooking sheets. Place in oven. Turn off oven. Leave in over night. In the morning turn the oven back on to 170 and cook for 15 to 30 minutes until crumbly. (I think next time I may leave in 15 minutes at the start at 170 and then shut off and follow the directions. Mine took a while to dry because they were very big).

I actually have bunches of dill, rosemary and basil that I grew this summer hanging upside down to air dry, then I'll strip and package them in a couple weeks-LOVE herbs!!
