Dried Basil

I decided to dry some of my basil to use later.  I just washed it and dried it off with paper towels, although it was still damp.  Then I put it in the oven really low, about 175 degrees, for about 1 hour.  I was busy doing other things, so I'm not exactly sure how long it was in there.  Below is what it looked like after it came out.

I crunched it up using my hands and put it in a plastic baggie.  That's it.  I think the oven took a bit of the flavor out of it, but I'm sure it will still be good.  I think I'll use a little more than my recipes call for.
