How to Substitute Dried Herbs for Fresh
In most recipes, a dried herb can be substituted for fresh but some conversions are necessary. As a general rule, you can use 1 tsp. of the dried herb in place of 1 Tbsp. of a fresh herb.
How to Wash Fresh Herbs
Always wash fresh herbs before use. Rinse small bunches under cold running water and blot dry. When you need to clean a large amount of herbs, fill a large bowl or clean sink with cold water and swish the herbs around to remove any dirt. Remove the herbs from the water and dry in a salad spinner or gently blot dry.
