Microwaved Herbs

Have you ever dried herbs in the microwave? I've had good luck with everything so far except basil. The basil wants to catch on fire after about 20 seconds. I don't know why but it just does. Everything else can go 30 seconds and be turned over for 30 more but not the basil. Any ideas?

No, but I wish I could help you. I never even considered drying herbs in the microwave. I guess you'll have to do the basil in 15-20 second increments and see if that works better. What power are you using when you dry the herbs?

That may be the problem BrewJen. I'm using high power. Maybe if I lowered the power level a little, the basil would do better. I hadn't thought of that. I'll try it this week and let you know. Thanks!

No we have not. The other day a friend brought over something but we ended up leaving it on the counter, then the cats got to it. What is the best thing in the microwave as far as herbs go?
