This method doesn't work all that well in places that are humid and you have no central A/C. The herbs will actually mold before they dry. Lord knows I've tried. I've found that the best way to preserve herbs is to blend them with olive oil and garlic in the food processor, then freeze.

I just chop one tbl spoon fresh basil per slot on the ice cube tray and fill with water. Once frozen, I move to a big freezer bag. The next best thing to fresh basil :)

Pretty much how I do it, except I just toss the mix into a baggie and chip off a piece when I need it.
