What is the Ratio of Dried Herbs to Fresh?
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen, talking about how to substitute dried herbs for fresh in a recipe. Dried herbs are stronger and more flavorful than fresh herbs, so you need less of them. This is because the dried herbs are more concentrated.
When substituting dried herbs for fresh, use a generous 1/4 teaspoon ground or 1 teaspoon crumbled for every tablespoon of finely chopped fresh herbs. Experiment with this approximation since the potency of dried herbs will vary.
Add dried herbs at the beginning of a recipe and fresh herbs closer to the end. If you add fresh herbs at the beginning of a recipe, the flavor will cook out of them and you won’t get the terrific flavor you hope for.
