I'm thinking of starting an herb garden, having always used dried herbs in the past. I realize the ratio is about 4x fresh versus dried, rosemary leaves are stripped from the stalk, etc. but how fine do you mince them? Like the size of dried? I have a mini electric chopper, would that work? Any tips? I plan on doing the basics - sweet basil, rosemary, thyme, italian parsley, chives... Thanks!
