Drying bay leaves, or any herbs, couldn't be easier. I put them in a dry vase in the kitchen and in a few days, they're completely dried. Then I pull the leaves from the stems over a wide, shallow bowl and refill my dried herb jars.

Also, last winter, I made a wreath for the front porch with bay and holly. It dried naturally outside. It's past time for me to replace it with a spring/summer wreath
