We grow herbs in the summer, they take very little room so it's pretty easy. I also dry them at the end of the season - hang them upside down inside a paper bag (like a lunch sack) in a dry place - I usually us the basment. Then I put them in little glass jars.
We don't use a lot things like Mrs. Dash becuase I never know which ones are full of non-natuaral ingredients.
Just expirment and make your own blend.

I very rarely buy fresh herbs and spices because I do not know how to store them...I do buy garlic, but forget to use it...I never buy fresh basil or parsley...I don't know how to store them.
I do use cinnamon but not fresh...usually ground cinnamon in everything from oatmeal to cooked veggies...I love to put cinnamon on baked yams...Cinnamon is good for diabetes control.
I would like to learn how to use other herbs and spices; esp. those good for heart and blood circulation.

What you need is fresh garlic, Basil, Parsley they are good but they have to be fresh, What i do is i peel a garlic clove and eat 1 every day, I know its not that good for your breath but great for your heart.x
