    Looked over in the corner where my dehydrator sits. Hmmm...nothing in it...Looked on Tiphero & saw an article on red clover...haven't dried that in a few years! Went out and picked about a gallon of flowers and they are now occupying 4 trays.

    Make herbal tea with it...generally with a little honey. Google medicinal uses for it or just drink it

    Default question for the people that dehydrate herbs

    I would like to dehydrate some herbs.........can you tell me what you do to them and what you have had good luck with dehydrating?

    I got a qt and 3/4 of moderately packed dried clover blossoms from the fresh gal. I started with. Think I'll do it again today.

    I haven't made the pineapple leather (to be honest, I'm not a big fan of the fruit leathers), but I do enjoy dried pineapple rings. Makes a wonderful snack.....so good we go through them practically faster than I can dry them!

    For herbs, flavor and nutrient value is best if they are dried quickly at low temperatures (most herbs will dry within 4 hours at approx. 100 degrees). You can dry different herbs at the same time - the flavors do not get mingled in the dehydrator. To dry, wash the plants and pat to dry before putting into the dehydrator. You can leave the small leaves on the stem, but stripping the larger leaves off the stem will help it to dry faster. Be sure there's room between the herbs for air to circulate, and rotate trays/check for dryness every 2 hours. Make sure the leaves are completely dry before storing (or they may mold). Store in an air-tight glass jar away from sunlight, heat and humidity. Use within one year.
