Drying Herbs

… i started to read MN which quickly reminded me that i have mountains of herbs in the garden that i need to harvest and dry… sage, thyme, mint, tarragon… i look up drying methods which are pretty straight forward though avoiding dust seems to be the biggest problem for me… the recommendation is to encase them in paper bags with holes punched in the bags to allow air circulation… i wonder if there are bags made for herb drying… and it turns out there are hanging mesh drying racks… the mesh doesn’t look fine enough to keep out dust, but perhaps that can be dealt with using paper towels over the top of the herbs?… will slow down the drying time but otherwise ok?…
