Dried vs fresh herbs

takadi | Apr 30, 2009 09:10 PM

I know there must be a topic out there, but I guess I'm guilty for either being too lazy or incompetent to find it.

I must know though...some claim that fresh herbs are superior in every way, and others claim that drying the herb concentrates its flavor. However, I'm recently falling under the impression that particular herbs are actually better dried, and other herbs are better left fresh (ie sage is better dried and tarragon is better fresh...correct me if I'm wrong). Can anyone tell me what these particular herbs are and what categories they fall under?
