This handy 5 minute project is super easy to make and a great help in the kitchen. It will minimize the time taken pulling individual leaves off stems. Also great if you want to store herbs quickly without the stems attached. Let's get started!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
You only need three things for this, but I wasn't accepted into the contest.
1. Measuring cup (1/2 cup is what I used)
3. Drill bits (width should be about the same as the size of the stem)
Step 2: Bend Handle
Bend the handle so that it is vertical (or close to vertical)
Step 3: Drill Holes
Drill them holes! As you can see the last hole on the bottom is way to the side. There was going to be another hole next to it but the bit broke so now it looks like a drunk did it. (Drunk drilling-"don't do it kids")
Step 4: Finished!
Just put a stem into the hole and pull. The leaves should fall into the cup. Tell me how long it took you in the comment box below. :)
Note: if the leaves aren't falling in the cup try bending the handle forward.
