Why Do Growers Cure herbs and spices with Violet Glass After Harvest?
Here’s what drying and curing properly does for you…
Breaks down chlorophyll and dramatically improves taste of the herb or spices.
Gets rid of the unpleasant “fresh hay” or “cut grass” smell which is common on newly harvested herbs
Brings out the subtle flavors and unique smell of your herbs
Reduces “harshness” in herbs; you’re less likely to start coughing or get a headache
Reduces the chance of mold growing on your herbs and spices
Curing seems to actually increase potency of the herbs and spices
