After a few days of drying outdoors, dip it in the oven, heated at a lower temperature. It would be good to leave off and open oven due to air flow. Most fruits and vegetables before drying should be briefly immersed in boiling water or cooked briefly on steam. This prevents spoilage of fruit and speeds drying.
