  1. One year we had Thanksgiving at my house. My mom decided to use fresh sage from my garden in the stuffing rather than the dried sage she usually used. The fresh sage was stronger in color and flavor and she used too much. We still laugh about the year of the green stuffing that nobody wanted to eat.

  2. I will be checking out all of these ideas. Thanks for sharing them, Brenda.
    I've been growing herbs for years but probably don't use them as often as I should. I always make pesto and like to freeze it in ice cube trays to use throughout the year. The cubes thaw quickly. I also dry oregano in a very low oven and then crumble it into jars. Haven't bought any in years.

  3. What a great way to dry fresh herbs. I had 4 of these hangers and just threw them out about a week ago!! The hanger looks so pretty with the herbs and the lace trim.
