Herbs play a large part in our chicken-keeping as well as my home cooking. Over the years, I have been enlarging our herb garden and growing more varieties of culinary herbs to use fresh all summer and also dry for use over the winter.
Until recently, I had been drying the herbs on wire cookie racks on the kitchen counter. Then I saw a cool drying rack on Pinterest used for drying flowers and a light bulb went off. Keep reading to learn how to make my tiered herb drying rack using old picture frames.
The tiers allow you to separate three different herbs on the various levels and screening allows air flow to ensure the herbs dry quickly and evenly. The best part is that you use old picture frames – and who doesn’t have a stack of them in their garage?
Even if you don’t, you can pick up inexpensive framed artwork at Goodwill and repurpose the frames.
