D and I just got done with stripping Tarragon leaves that I dried. I dried the entire Tarragon bush, and cut it clear back, it may sprout a few more but with the heat, I really doubt it. I hung this Tarragon under my carport and it took about a week to dry, it really helped with the very hot air we have. So now I have Tarragon in the freezer for winter for my fish and chicken recipes.
I like my herbs dry but not to the point where they do not have their green color. This Tarragon is just right for me.
Take care all and I will see what else I can come up with. I need to pick Basil, so I may do this and process this and post photos.
Take care and don't get too hot in the garden.
