Not sure if this makes a real difference because it still take a long time to dry. Think it is my dehydrator. The walls are thin and do not hold the heat in very well. I am sure the Excalibur's are more efficient, but better suited for low heat drying because they are made of plastic.
When dry, I put into a glass jar with lid. They are very little. Almost like beads. I try to take them out when each feel dry with a little give. I am still working on how dry to make them. The golden berries dry are not as tasty as they are fresh, but still addictive. They have a slight bitter aftertaste and yet I still crave them.
