I've tried drying my own herbs before and found some easier than others. Some I hang in the airing cupboard, others I dry on a tray in the upper oven but I've never managed to get dried oregano that retains any aroma. In a brief spot of sunshine last week, I decided to try another way - spreading the leaves on a metal tray on a hot windowsill - and it works! I actually have usable dried oregano rather than the normal dead leaves. Now all I need to do is pick a LOT more oregano.
