How to Use a Convection Oven As a Food Dehydrator
|Serves:||DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH YOU DEHYDRATE|
|fruits and vegetables|
|meats for jerky|
I happen to have 2 convection ovens and I use them over my regular oven to dehydrate foods. Convection cooking takes less time than your regular oven.
I always prop oven door open just a little so more air gets into it to help circulate and dry. I use a very large rubber spatula, the kind that is heat proof to prop door open.
2. Place the food to be dried on a cookie sheet so that the food edges are not touching and there is plenty of air circulation around the food
4. Close the oven door or experiment with propping it open with a wood spoon for more air circulation.
