Drying Tarragon

Again with the food dehydrator. I’m going to run this machine into the ground!

The Internet says that tarragon doesn’t retain its flavor when dried, but I gave it a whirl last night anyway…and as far as drying an herb goes, it’s one of the easiest! The brittle leaves pull right off the stems with little trouble and little extra stem-y bits mixed in.

The smell is nice, so far, but I haven’t tried it in a dish. The┬áreal reason I’m trying this is because my favorite post-lunch tea at work, Tazo’s Refresh Mint, is just mint, tarragon, and spearmint. I have two of the three in my yard, so why not try a little homemade herbal tea?
