Here is a tip worth sharing. I had a chat with my herb lady friend from IL this weekend on drying herbs. She has cold-dried some, especially basil and tarragon.
pick fresh herbs, rinse off, pat dry. Spread out on paper towel in frig, and put another towel over top. Check for dryness in 7 - 10 days. If dry, lay on counter again with toweling until really dry, then put in jars.
Now if I can remember this come September when they do need harvested and dried!
