Drying Lemon Balm for Kombucha

I feel so blessed to have lemon balm, peppermint, chives, yarrow, biscuitroot, kamas, and other herbs and plants growing across my property. Today I’m extra grateful for lemon balm — that prolific, tasty herb that spreads like wildfire in spring and adds an extra zing to my salads.

Today I’m going to dry some lemon balm and use it to make kombucha. I’m anxious to see how this will turn out. I also threw in a few peppermint leaves while I was picking these leaves from my herb garden. Stay tuned on how this new kombucha will turn out!
