Here are the steps to make your own bouquet garni - tied bundles of herbs. I did this with my 83 year old mom who is on the video doing it for the very first time. Anyone can do this, it would be a great activity for children.

lay out herbs

Harvest herbs cutting long stems.  Clean herbs if necessary.

Lay out on a table and pull several together in a bundle.

Tie a cotton foodsafe string about 18 inches long around the middle of the bundle. 

Take each end string and wrap down to the end and tie a knot at each end.

Dry by hanging or laying on a drying rack.

Dry for 3 days to 1 week. 

Once the herbs are dry, store in a glass mason jar with a reCAP lid.

These are great to use in soups, stews and roasts.
