Happy weekend lovelies, hope you have some nice plans this Saturday?

It´s a food festival going on in Oslo, with tastings of Norwegian produced products and several events around the city, we are going to check it out a bit later, but first I wanted to share a great DIY project that I just finished with my mum.

 

HOMEGROWN DRIED HERBS

My mum has a lovely garden with loads of pretty flowers, but more interesting, a huge herb garden. With; oregano, thyme, mint, parsley, lavender and a few others as well.
Drying herbs is easy, you pick a huge bunch, better do it before it gets to cold, so end of August beginning og September is a good time. Either lay them flat on a tray or hang them up, best to keep them in a dry place. They need a few weeks to dry, so be patient.

 

When they are dry enough, you just pull the leafs of the stick/branch. So you only get the herb leafs, then crush them a bit, so it realises more of the flavour and it will also be easier to use it in everyday cooking. I always keep old glass jars, which is perfect storage for the dried herbs, it looks nice, so it is also a really nice little gift idea.
