The Unexpected Dehydrator:  Most people wouldn't consider their fridge a dehydrator. However, the cool, dry environment with consistent airflow creates a perfect low-and-slow dehydration process.

The Green Chili Preservation Method:

Harvest and Clean: Before your extended trip, pick your homegrown green chilies. Rinse them thoroughly and pat them dry with a clean cloth to remove any surface moisture.

Fridge Tray Magic: Arrange the clean chilies on a tray that comfortably fits within your refrigerator. 

The Waiting Game (Not Really): Green chilies can dehydrate within days in your fridge! The exact time will depend on factors like humidity and initial moisture content.

Reaping the Rewards:  Upon your return, you'll be greeted by perfectly dried, crispy green chilies – ready to be used or stored in an airtight container for extended freshness.

Key Takeaways:

  • Your refrigerator can be a viable dehydrator for small quantities of produce.
  • Green chilies dehydrate significantly faster than anticipated in a fridge environment.
  • This method offers a convenient and resource-efficient way to preserve homegrown produce during extended absences.
  • This technique goes beyond travel planning; it's a clever hack for anyone looking to preserve small batches of chilies without investing in a dedicated dehydrator.  So, the next time you have leftover chilies or plan a trip, unleash the hidden dehydrator in your fridge!
