  1. Hi Jill, I want to make this – thank you! I do have a question that may sound a little silly, but I have to ask because I just don’t know. It’s about the herbs. I know they have to be washed first but do they need to be completely dry before I add them to the jar with everything else? I only ask because I’m concerned about mold in the end product. Maybe it doesn’t work that way? Maybe the acid from the vinegar counteracts any mold? But I don’t know….if you have insight to that, I’d appreciate that. Would hate for 32 oz of all those wonderful ingredients to go to waste because of *just washed herbs*. Thank you.

    ALSO, I am looking forward to making your apple fritters AGAIN soon. Those were a HUGE hit!

    1. That is an interesting question. I would just make sure to pat them dry before adding them in. I am not 100% sure but I don’t think it will cause a mold issue.
