Me and my fiance bought a Nesco American Harvest (Amazon.com: Nesco American Harvest FD-61WHC Snackmaster Express Food Dehydrator All-In-One Kit with Jerky Gun: Kitchen & Dining
) and have so far only been able to dehydrate apples and jerky. We've tried dehydrating pineapples, strawberries and bananas yet they've all three turned out WAY too gummy. I don't even know if gummy is the right word.. They were REALLY chewy and gummy, if that makes sense?
The pineapples were canned, so that could be the problem with those. The strawberries, no clue what happened with those but we soaked them overnight in sugar, and yet they taste horrible; despite tasting pretty delicious straight out of the sugar. The bananas turned out chewy and gummy... We were looking for them to turn out more crisp like chips, but so far, nothing. They've been in the dehydrator now for almost 24 hours solid at 135 degrees. We soaked the bananas in a 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup water mixture for about 5 minutes before going in.
Does anyone have any idea on how to get at least the bananas to more of a chip/crunchy consistency?
