– Select mature and good quality pandan leaves. Harvest using sharp knife or scissors.

– Wash thoroughly in running water to remove all adhering dirt . Shake to remove excess water.

РArrange in slotted trays uniformly.  Dry in front of electric fan to facilitate fast removal of residual water drops. This will also prevent  microbial growth in leaves.

– Finally, dry in room temperature with adequate ventilation for one week. Drying time might take longer during the rainy seasons due to high air humidity.

– Cut pandan leaves to desired sizes and pack in air tight container. I used aluminum pouch as my packaging.

The resulting product is still green pandan leaves . Oven and sun drying is not recommended . These methods may turn your leaves to brown and alter its natural properties.
