Some of the dehydrator info I've seen includes placing the dehydrated food into a closed glass jar for 24 hours or so before sealing and putting it away. After letting the food sit in a jar, which supposedly allows for some redistribution of moisture, check to see if there is any condensation in the jar. If so, dehydrate some more. Another source says to weigh the food before and after drying, and gives a chart for how dry foods should be. I think green beans were supposed to give up close to 90% of their weight. Have I done this? NO!
