Dry herbs are a cheaper and more convenient substitution, but as they are more potent youll need to use less. The general rule is a ratio of three to oneif a recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of fresh oregano, you need only 1 teaspoon of dried, since 3 teaspoons equal 1 tablespoon.Dried herbs work best in foods that need to be cooked, so that they have time to soften and release their oils. Fresh herbs are best in salads and other raw preparations.If you buy fresh herbs but arent going to use them all, chop them up and sprinkle them into ice cube trays. Fill the remaining cube space with water and freeze.Once frozen, place the herbs into a reusable airtight container or bag.33'
