View Full Version : dehydrated the same as sun dried ?

lets pretend you lived in a hot place, like ethiopia, in theory you could just use the sun instead of a dehydrator.

I would think so. Just keeping an eye on stuff(s) to make sure it doesn't mold...

As long as you don't have mold or insect problems, I'd say sundrying is better (cheaper and more dread binghy) than dehydrators.

What does "dread bunghy" mean?
This is not scientific at all, however, even though it's more ecological to sun dry stuff, if you'll notice the diff betw sundried tomatoes for example, they're brown, whereas those in the D are bright red.
Because they're not drying 24/7 like at night, it's my theory that some oxidation is going on.
I make my own dehydrated tomatoes, and one time I shut them off for some reason, then turned them back on in the morning --and they all got that dark brownish color.
