So what kind of dehydrators are people using to dry their peppers? I've got a Nesco I've used for years, but I was looking to get a bigger one. The problem I've seen is it's hard to get a full size pepper into most of these little trays. On my current one I actually bought a second dehydrator, and cut the middle out of the trays. This gives me spacer rings that I stack on top of each tray to give me clearance and plenty of room to dry them. I tried doing a ristra but after spending an hour and realizing I was only on pepper number 10 or so I decided back to the dehydrator.
Do you cut your peppers in half, or do they have certain models available that have deeper trays? I saw a post recommend about someone who put pvc pipes in his trays and wrapped it with cling film....I don't think that's the way I'd like to go.
I found some topics about dehydrators, but not a lot of details inside. So share your tips and tricks, advice and pictures! (I'll post pictures of my current setup when I get home).
