Yes, I hang them to dry and then place them into air tight jars, storing them in a cool dark cabinet. That way there is no waste in the garden.
I also will chop them fresh and then place different combos into zipper bags and freeze them so we have ready to go fresh herb mixes for meals.

I haven't tried drying them or freezing them, but what I like to do is chop herbs finely and put them in a bit of butter, then roll it into a log in wax paper. After re-refrigerating, it's an herb butter that's perfect for on top of meats or breads.

I dry all my herbs by putting them in PAPER bags and hand them in cupboard or on a hook in my kitchen I keep them on the stalks and put the heads inside the bag like a boquet tie a string areoun base then hang then just wait for them to dry. Then i crush the dry leaves and put in airtight container

I have dried herbs from the garden in the microwave. On a papertowel, can't remember how long I ran them for. But short bursts until the leaves crumble easily. Good luck with either method you choose. I would start a small window garden for fresh herbs, it will be worth it.

Thanks for the tips on freezing. I found an article on line about doing that. I think I may try it with both of them.

when it is only a little bit it is not worth the effort of drying in my book what i would do is chopp it up small then store in the icecube trays you get to make icecubes and freeze it(some like totop up with water or stock when freezing then you just need to drop it in your soups etc as and when needed.the beuty of using the ice cube tray is it is then all nicely portioned out for you.hope this helps.

I have some parsley and cilantro in the fridge that I won't be able to use before it goes bad. While I know it isn't that expensive to just toss, I would rather not waste it if possible. Has anyone tried to salvage the leftovers like that without a dehydrator? Have your frozen it instead?
