All the above said, I have always been a fan of a long drying/curing process. Just tested a little flower. It agrees with me quite well. Ha!
I’d love to do a long cure but the family never seems to be able to wait! The have their hands in the cookie jar the day after harvest.
This is my method. This year my house was a tad drier though. We had stems snapping in 3 days!
This is our biggest problem as well.
