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

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?
parched corn is a kizzing cousin that every prepper should be familiar - something extra to do with that bargain dent corn .....

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.
