- Dried herbs are a great alternative when you don’t have any fresh herbs on hand. Always keep herbs tightly sealed and in a cool and dark place. Before using them, grind them vigorously between your fingers or lightly crush them in a mortar. This releases the essential oils and allows the flavor to fully develop.
