How it Works
Used as an ingredient in some preserving recipes
Can be made on the Woodworking Bench using a separate recipe (see Woodworking)
Chance to collect when cleaning off a used Curing Rack
Shelving unit that will start the preserving process if item is placed on it

Curing & Drying:
Preparing to Cure/Dry:
Click on the Preserving Shelves or the Brazen Homestead Cookbook to find the new 'Curing & Preserving' menu. From here you can choose which item you want to prep for curing.
Curing/Drying Racks will not cure on their own and need to be placed in the proper environment for the curing process to start.
Place the Rack on the Preserving Shelves.
Place the Rack outside in the sun. Remember that rain will spoil the batch!
When on a curing shelf items will cure/dry at the following rates (approximately):
12 hours = White Tea
1 day = Green Tea
4 days = Oolong Tea
8 days = Black Tea
12 days = Spoiled
2 days = Light Coffee Beans
4 days = Medium Coffee Beans
6 days = Dark Coffee Beans
8 days = Espresso Coffee Beans
10 days = Spoiled
If placed outside while it's hot, the items will cure/dry much faster.
If placed on a surface in a cellar (underground), items will take MUCH longer to spoil.
Hovering over a Rack will tell you whether or not it's curing/drying.
Racks can still spoil over a period time whether cured or not. If the item is within a few weeks of spoiling, a countdown timer will show when you hover over it.
Collecting Cured/Dried Items:
When the item has reached a specific point the item on the rack will change color. If you're unsure what stage it's at you can hover over it and it will tell you what you will be able to collect from it.
Collecting the item will give you a basket of finished product which can be used to make other recipes. These baskets take very long to spoil, around 32 sim days, and like the curing/drying racks, will last much longer if stored in the cellar. You will also have a chance to get an empty curing rack back or several pieces of wood if the rack breaks.
Racks that have items on them cannot be stored in an inventory at the moment or they will randomly spoil. If I'm able to find a fix I will update this in the future.
If you have another mod that includes/changes the resources below, then it will conflict with this mod.
