difference in dried v.s. fresh herb amts.

JessicaKlonsky | Oct 25, 2003 07:58 PM

I often note that recipes will call for much more of a fresh herb than a dried herb. Ex: Use 2 tbsp fresh minced rosemary or 1 tsp dried. I don't understand why you would use more fresh herb than dried herb. It seems that the fresh herb would be more pungent and you would use less of it. Can anyone explain this?
