Wash and dry oregano. If you're drying organic oregano that you know hasn't been sprayed with chemicals you can just brush it off and skip the washing. If you're unsure, or the oregano is dirty, wash it first and then dry. I prefer drying it overnight on towels to remove any remaining moisture. Also, a salad spinner works great for helping dry oregano quicker! Do not move on to the next step until the oregano is completely dry.
Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. Place oregano in one layer on a baking sheet. Depending on how much oregano you have, you might need to use multiple baking sheets.
Bake oregano for 1 hour.
Remove oregano from the oven and crumble leaves into a container. Store oregano in a jar, preferably on a dry dark cabinet shelf.
