Hi all, relatively new user here. I have already gotten bucket loads of info from this forum, thanks for that.
I have just bought myself a dehydrator, going to use it for fruits, veges, jerky, etc.
So naturally my thoughts went to drying my orange habaneros to preserve them.
Looking through the forums for info, and it seems that most people here dry their chillies and turn them into powder or flakes.
Is there any reason why not to keep them whole for future use? Am I missing something or is this just to make them easier to use in recipes etc?
I read low temp and long time for doing the drying, so all good there unless I am told otherwise.
Lastly, your opinion on should I cut them in half before drying or leave whole.
