Tipsy Tuesday (#121)

Dried herbs vs. fresh herbs...what's the deal?

Tip #121

Sometimes you just can't find a particular herb fresh or it may be too costly to consider using. So, how much dried do you substitute?

Best rule of thumb is to use 1/3 the amount of dried herbs to replace fresh. If a recipe calls for 1 tablespoon fresh, use 1 teaspoon dried. And for best taste results, add dried herbs at the beginning of your cook time, fresh at the end.
