Oooooh, good question! I love those dried banana chips! I've been wanting to make some and was wondering if it could be done in oven or microwave. I don't have room for another piece of equipment like a dehydrator.
Frilly, I hope you don't think I'm stalking you. We just happen to like the same things. Imagine that! LOL
I had a dehydrator once, but it was noisy when it ran and put out so much heat into the room, I got rid of it. I would like to make banana chips in the oven if I could. I love dried cranberries, but they are so pricey. Would like to buy them when they are on sale, and then dehydrate them. Wonder how long they would stay good?
FrillyLily, I have a Nesco dehydrator which I keep in the basement so that the noise isn't an issue. It came with a recipe book which includes fruits. We've dried strawberries, pears and tomatoes, and DH dries oregano in it; the other herbs like cilantro, parsley and basil, we freeze because we like them better that way. We love the pears dried; they're great for snacking or for adding to cooked cereals. We've also tried drying watermelon, which is interesting to say the least!
