I'm going to build a solar dehydrator in the next few weeks. Poking around I find lots of information and pictures, so I'm looking for some advice from folks who have built and/or used them to see what really works. So any advice, details or designs would be very helpful.
One question off the top, is it better to keep direct sunlight off of the material being dehydrated or is it OK? I was wondering if being in the sun degrades the product to any extent.
