I've tried so many times to dry my herbs for winter use and always end up with mold.

My favourite are Monarda and Catnip but I'm going to try your recipes, they sound delicious.

I agree, this was one of the better articles I have read about herbal teas. Thumbs up

Lee Anne, if I can suggest, I seal the dried herbs in a container and watch for moisture to accumulate on the lid. If it does, it tells me it is not dry enough. Moisture should be the only reason they mold or get musty.

What I always find is when the herbs are dried enough, they loose their flavor and I'm disappointed.

Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
