Oven Drying


Dehydrators are efficient and come in a variety of models.
Another inexpensive way to preserve foods using simple kitchen tools and appliances, is to oven dry. This can be done by placing food on simple cookie sheets in the oven at 120 to 145 degrees (Fahrenheit). Usually, 4 to 12 hours will be sufficient to dry most items.

Even so, cookie sheets tend to create uneven drying; so for best results, larger items can be dried right on the oven racks or on specially prepared trays, such as the ones described in the section on sun drying.
