a jar with silica gel wrapped in cheesecloth for about a week.

When the seeds feel dry to the touch, they're done. Store seeds in a small, dry bag. Tightly seal the bag, then label it with the plant name and harvest date and place it in a jar or other airtight container. Store jars in a cool, dry basement, the vegetable crisper of your fridge or an interior closet.
