In a previous post several of my commenters observed that they lived in places too humid for solar dehydrating, and had been using electric food dryers. We have similar issues here – the summers are very humid, and there is a tendency for things not to dry rapidly enough, while reabsorbing moisture overnight and molding. Fortunately, the great Sue Robishaw, homesteading Goddess, connected me to her variations on Larisa Walk and Bob Dahse’s design for the “Midwest Solar Food Dryer”
We have a small version and plans for a much larger one, and have had a great deal of success with this – a small but important way to get off electricity! It also allows for much greater capacity than even the largest electric dehydrator.
