Here is a photo journal of me oven-drying some peppermint leaves that I was gifted with yesterday. I was nervous about the process (still am) but I actually enjoyed it.
And also lastly here is my little peppermint plant that I am hoping will take and grow, grow grow! I am super excited about this because I have taken to drinking peppermint tea because I am cutting out milk and sugar. I am hoping that I enjoy my tea even more than ever before.
|Step 1. I washed the leaves and let them dry.|
|Step 2. Then I clipped them from the stems.|
|Step. 3 I laid them on cookie sheets and popped them into the oven on the lowest setting with the door cracked open for 2-3 hours.|
|This is how they looked when they came out.|
|And here they are in my little jar. I have more in another container :)|
|Grow little buddy grow!|
