Herb drying basket

I saw a photo of a similar basket in an old book and thought I’d try to make one myself. The wire mesh was slightly fiddly to place over all the uprights but I got there eventually.

A trac border secured the mesh underneath and the rest of the basket was finished in the usual way. I wish I had completed a row of weaving before the trac border but there’s always next time.

The basket can be hung above your oven or in the airing cupboard allowing the dry air to circulate around the herbs as they dry.
