30 Bananas a Day!

Can you make sun-dried tomatoes without a dehydrator?

I would like to make some myself because I can find any that doesn't have sulfide or aren't soaked in oil. So is there a way to make these without investing in a dehydrator?  Would it be ok to just leave them outside on a really sunny day??

Cat Moon my grandfather dried tomatoes, bananas and other fruits on insect screened trays in the shade on bright warm sunny days. Beside a brick wall or other surface that absorbs the suns warmth speeds the process up. If the humidity is not too high it takes about a full day and a half, sometimes less. On days with high humidity its probably better not to even try it because of mould issues if they are left out too long without drying fully. I never actually saw his drying trays in the sun, I am guessing he had reasons for this but never had opportunity to ask. If you make some let us know your method and how they turn out, I'd be interested to hear because I am thinking of doing mangoes next season :)

Wow that is a beautiful picture! I am not so sure with me around, they would get dried lol.
that is so cute
I would just eat them with no hands.
