Hi - I have a bumper crop of apricots this year so I decided to try drying some. I am using a Nesco/American Harvester FD80 dehydrator.
I cut the apricots in half, soaked them in a fruit fresh solution then laid them flesh down on the trays. I set the temperature to 130 degrees. It's been about 20+ hours so far and I seem to be getting mixed results plus none of them are really dry enough yet. As you can see in the photo, some of them spread and have thin, dry, dark edges and some of them are still really moist.
I've tried to find some info on drying them but most of what I have found was pretty basic and vague. So, can any of you tell me if they look right? Should i have placed them on the tray cut side up? Do they need a lower/higher temp? Thanks
