With my butterfly summer dress under the butterfly lilac. (at least this is how we call the summer lilac in Austria) I don't want this summer to end! I don't feel ready for autumn yet, even though it is one of my favorite seasons. How about you? I still need more warm sun on my skin to be ready for the cold again.
I cut them with scissors, because I find it easier than with a knife.
And I dry them in the baking oven at 50 degrees and leave the oven door a little gap opened, so that the damp can escape. Every now and then I turn the herbs while drying until I feel they are ready. I let them cool down and put them in jars. So easy, but so practically when you don't have to buy all those herbs in the shops later in the year.
