|The dried stalks...|
|Strip the leaves gently by pulling the leaves from bottom to top.|
|I stripped all the Oregano leaves while reading a book on Kindle...:)|
Once you are done, put your dried herb in its own container and put it in a dark cabinet to store as light can destroy its essential oils (aka: flavor.)
I prefer Oregano dried as it's such a strong herb, but I DO use it fresh because it's handy to do so. I also like to cook it along with dried beans to give them much more flavor. All in all, I love this herb and I hope you do too! Blessings!
