Drying herbs

Today I'm drying herbs.  Yesterday I cut, Italian and curly parsley, sage, oregano and basil.   Thankyou to Sharren, a friend who suggested turning the oven to 180c, laying the herbs on greaseproof paper on a tray, placing in the oven and then turning the oven off.  Leave them overnight and in the morning they will be dry, crunch them and place in jars.  I'm now on my second batch,  I'm sure I will now have enough herbs to see me over the winter.
