Why Is My Rosemary Turning Grey When Drying?
I am trying to dry my rosemary. I laid it out on a counter for a day and then I run my hands down the stalk to remove the leaves (got this info on the net). However, the leaves are turning grey or black. What is the problem?

There is a fungus on the leaves. It is probably pretty humid where you are which makes the problem worse. I would recommend when drying that you have a fan blowing gently over the area you are using for drying or try drying in a paper bag. This will help reduce the humidity so that fungus does not develop.
