I have a ton of lemon balm and mint growing in my garden. Every summer I swear I'm going to dry them for tea, but I never do.
Does anyone have any tips for doing this?
I was even wondering if I could give away jars of dried mint as gifts, or find fillable tea bags. And what are other uses for dried mint?

Readers, how do you dry herbs? I've seen people hang them to dry, but I haven't tried this yet myself. (I also have scads of mint and lemon balm, so I really should!)
