How'd your Jaos & Tomatoes work out for you?
They turned out pretty good with a nice smokey aroma. The true test will be when I finally get around to making chili. Between the smoke dried tomato, and homemade chipotle its gonna be awesome! Just need it to get a little bit colder! Still too warm for chili!.
As far as the dehydrator goes, it's well worth it. I've got my money back a couple times over now. The wife even uses it for her herbs. I currently have a batch of cayenne drying out now, with another batch of chipotle to follow this weekend.
Heres a protip: When dehydrating peppers, run them out in the garage or a well ventilated area. Unless of course you like inhaling the equivalent of mace!
