Got A Match ?
I spent far more time than I bargained for rolling fresh sage leaves in newspaper to dry it out. I'm getting a stock supply so I can make up some smudging bundles. A few hours later, I realized I had something that looked like alien cigars. I have never dried my sage this way before, and I don't remember now how long it takes this way, but I understand the newspapers help with absorbing the moisture and limits the chance for mold. I know there will be some "shrinkage", but I hope to end up with a good stock until my little cuttings have grown into something more substantial.
