Smart Tips for Using Dried Herbs

  • Though fresh may be best in many cases, intensely flavored dried herbs definitely have their uses. Buy dried herbs in small amounts and use them up within a few months to ensure they're fresh and flavorful.
  • Crush them in the palm of your hand by pressing and rubbing them gently with a finger to release their aromatic oils -- and always add dried herbs at the beginning or middle of cooking.
  • Generally, 1 teaspoon of dried herbs is equal to 1 tablespoon (3 teaspoons) of snipped fresh herbs.
