Herbs-I love you, let me count the ways

This morning I did as other bloggers have told me, and I harvested the herbs in my garden. They say you should harvest in the early hours of the day, so there I was in my pj´s harvesting Tarragon, Oregano, Lemon Balm, and Thyme! I am sure the neighbors got a kick of me, running around the yard in my pj´s!

I decided to dry the Lemon Balm and the Thyme, the Tarragon is going to be frozen. Now, to the Oregano, I have an abundance in Oregano this year so I am drying a large bunch and with the rest I made oregano salt! Once again I my kitchen smells so wonderful. I look forward to trying out all my new salts in my recipes.

Freshly harvested herbs out of my very own garden.

Oregano! Ready for the Thermomix!

 Oregano, next I added the sea salt and after just a few short seconds, the thermomix made Oregano Salt!

The salt needs to dry, so I put in the oven at 140° for about 20-30 minutes.

The next step is to package the oregano to follow!
