    Put them on a cake cooling rack, if you have any. You want to have air circulating around them to promote drying without decay. -- Galefridus

      I just plucked about 20 leaves of basil out of my indoor planter to
      stimulate more growth. I don't have any immediate need of the basil.
      Is there an easy way to dry the leaves? Right now they are all on a
      couple paper towels on paper plates sitting on my dining room table.

      You should also be able to freeze them in ice cube trays (with water.) Then, when you need them, you defrost them and they are all new again ! -- Dum Vivo
