Here’s a cool DIY on how to make your own solar food dehydrator and get dried bananas like shown.
The idea of creating a hybrid, solar food dehydrator, that also adhered to as many of the principles of modern food dehydration as possible sounded excellent to me. The potential of using this old system in new ways can save both power and materials. The original goal was to produce a solar dehydrator that had an upfront cost similar to a conventional dehydrator, but used less industrialized materials in addition to harnessing the sun’s energy, which reduces the energy impact associated with conventional food dehydration (discussed later).
Could I construct something that would do this with the limited knowledge I have about solar design?
