Never Run Out Of Cilantro Again Dehydrate It! I have a friend, Kathleen that will call or text me and ask “do you have any Cilantro”? Sometimes I do and sometimes I do not…..well I have changed that forever! I will never run out of Cilantro again because I will dehydrate more once I get down to my last jar….love it! It smells so wonderful in those pint jars….I have so many recipes that call for Cilantro….let me know if you try dehydrating some. I would love to hear!
Dehydrated Cilantro by Food Storage Moms
- 1-6 Bunches Cilantro-wash and pat dry (Any amount will work if it fits into your dehydrator)
- I set my Excalibur Dehydrator at 115 degrees and it took about two hours. I turned off the dehydrator and left the dehydrated Cilantro to rest on the racks overnight because I wanted to make sure it was very dry before I stored it. I placed the Cilantro in pint size jars and used my FoodSaver to remove any air to prolong its storage life. Remember, check out your dehydrator book for temperature. The drying time will always vary depending on the humidity in the area where you are drying it.
Tips from readers:
Karen: I have been growing, dehydrating, then freezing cilantro for a few years now. I don’t think it loses much scent or flavor. I use it in salads, salsa, soup and on whatever meats I choose.
