How do I dry basil?
"Is it possible for me to just cut my basil and hang it upside down to dry and use later to cook with or do I have to dry it in my oven? I would like to in joy it hanging upside down I like having herbs and flowers hanging over my sink in my kitchen because of the wonderful smells and the look dried colors. Can you recommend good herbs to hang and dry? Thank you for your time. Erica Hampton, Va"

Yes, you can hang bunches of basil and other herbs upside down to dry as long as there is not too much humidity in the air.
