The drying rack is a block that is used to dry items, such as making jerky out of raw food or rotten flesh, leather out of cooked meat, and more.
The drying rack can also be used as a decorative block to show off items, although there is no way to prevent items from being dried. You can, however, safely hang items that cannot be dried on the drying rack.
How to use
Right-click the drying rack with an item to add it to the rack. The item will be dried after a certain amount of time which depends on the item.
Many kinds of jerky can be made, including beef, chicken, mutton, porkchop, fish, and non-dangerous rotten flesh. Additionally, gelatinous slime drops and coagulated slime drops can be made by drying various differents kinds of slime balls.
The drying rack is crafted by placing three wooden slabs in a horizontal line on a crafting table.
