i've seen a lot of stuff on permies about medicinal herbs, but not a dedicated thread about just plain ol' eatin' herbs. (though some of them are still indeed medicinal)

so here's me starting one with this nifty infographic.

It's not how they say to store it, but I like to keep some dill in a ziploc in the freezer. When you pull it out the individual leaves just fall off without having to chop.

Additionally, I've found thyme (Lemon and English varieties) easiest to work with when dry. The leaves/needles easily separate from the woody stems at that point and they can be used whole or ground.
