I've just spent a ridiculous amount of time sifting the needle-like bits from dried thyme from my garden. Stripping the leaves off each twig, chopping everything in the food processor, all of no use. I air-dried the thyme in little bouquets, maybe it would be better to remove the leaves before drying? After years of struggle with thyme, I have two bushy thyme plants this year, and I was looking forward to jars full of crumbled organic thyme. Tonight most of it will end up in the compost bin. I have dried lots of other herbs, none was so tedious. Any tricks or suggestions? Thanks!
