Q: 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?

Editor: 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!)
