MICROWAVE TIP

DRYING HERBS
Remove 12-15 leaves from the stalks, place the leaves in a circle around the edge of the carousel on kitchen paper. M/W 1-2 mins approx turning around occasionally until the leaves feel dry.
Leave the leaves for a couple of hours before placing in an air tight container. Because of the speed of drying the herbs retain their colour effectively.

DRYING FOWERS
Flower petals can be dried in the same way. Always pick the flowers in peak condition, after the dew has dried off, remove the petals and place in a circle around the edge of the carousel on kitchen paper. A large rose should be dry in 1-2 mins when the petals should feel dry. Leave the petals for at least an hour before packing into an airtight container or using for Rose Sugar etc.

Take care when drying herbs etc, because the moisture is extracted so quickly it is like operating an empty oven, which can damage the oven, so place a small cup of water in the middle of the oven tray to avoid any damage.
