Potpourri  Preserving the Floral Harvest

Drying Flowers with a homemade desiccating powder

First:

Mix together in a shoebox:

2 cups corn meal
1 cup borax laundry booster
Then:

Select flower blooms (to dry) and…
in the shoebox, bury the blooms in the drying mixture, taking care they are not touching.

Depending upon size, the flowers will dry within a few days.
