This step by step tutorial of how to build a homesteading solar food dehydrator can use the sun’s powerful rays to remove moisture from fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Evenly thinly sliced fruits and vegetables that are generously spaced apart upon removable trays will shrink over a period of hours.
All the materials you need to build this simple do it yourself project can be found at your local home improvement store.
Do you live in an area where weather conditions are hot, sunny with low humidity ? Great, a solar food dryer that can collect sufficient solar heat quickly reaching 120F or hotter.
Have you ever open your car door on a hot day to a burst of stifling hot air ? The air gets trapped in the car and as the temperature rises, the car becomes an solar oven. Just another reason not to leave kids, elderly people and dogs inside even with the windows partially down.
