    If you have a local tractor Supply a fifty pound bag of chicken feed runs right at $12. It corn already cracked. Will It taste the greatest? Probably not, but nutricious and cheap

    Thanks M.R. !!!

    If you don't mind me asking, why can't it be rehydrated?

    I have the same dehydrator and I love it but both times I've tried to dehydrate corn, they never got completely crunchy. They're always chewy! The first batch was canned corn, the batch I have going now is frozen, and it's been almost 24 hours at 135 degrees.

    Does this happen to anyone else? Is it supposed to be chewy?

    Sun isn't at important as wind. The sun can destroy a lot of nutrients. So depending on what you're drying, sun might not be advisable. I did do this however with some cooked pinto beans. Why dehydrate beans you ask? Well, I work away from home outside except in the winter months. I'm prepping now to be on the road until October. If I cook my beans or rice ahead of time, then dehydrate them, I can actually re-hydrate them in a black or metal container with some water and seasonings, in my car on the dash from the sun or quickly cook over a rocket stove if the weather isn't cooperating. It saves a ton of money.
