I love dried cantaloupe..
So I decided to try to make my own in my Nuwave Oven.. I can buy it at the store, but I can't seem to find any without added sugar and I'm trying to stay away from refined sugar..
So we went to Costco and got some cantaloupe. Clay sliced it up and I put it in the Nuwave.
It didn't work. The slices were too thick. I had it going for three hours and they still weren't dehydrated.
So I made stuffed peppers (with balsamic glaze) and mushrooms instead.
I asked Clay to put up a clothesline today. He will do anything if it involves a trip to the hardware store for supplies.
A day later..
We went to see Phantom of the Opera tonight.
The show was so good!
Even Clay liked it..
Ok, so back to dehydrating.
Since the cantaloupe was a total fail we decided to give jerky a shot.
We found three different methods of making jerky after it's marinated; dehydrating it in the Nuwave
Dehydrating it in the oven
Or rather it could, if I had another wire rack to go with my other baking sheet. But I don't so this is also going to take a long time.
And dehydrating it Alton Brown style.
This method takes 12 hours but we can dry a whole bunch at once.
Oh my gosh the house smells so good!
