Without a dehydrator?  

I never eat up a whole papaya before it goes bad and it dawned on me to dehydrate it.  I froze it last time and it's really not any good.  It gets runny and the flavor changes to something that's not as good.

I've never dehydrated any fruit before.  I don't have a dehydrator.  But I saw on my daughters school them cut up an apple in thin slices after coring it and hanging it on a string.  I thought that was a good idea.  Can you do this inside though?  Or is there a way you can let it just sit on something?  My oven goes real low, I can get it down to like about 100 degrees.  Maybe do them just like nuts?

Anyone know?

But where?  The oven? Or just leave it out at room temp?  If it was summer I could try outside, but it's still very cold here.

I just was told (by a Naturopath)that cooking it and mashing it up still retains the enzymes and is good for digestion.

I was eating way too much papaya (breakfast was papaya chunks with greek yogurt and honey) so I bought the whole fruit.

This is a link I found online for using a regular convention oven for drying fruit. They say you can do the same with toaster ovens.

It makes sense since baking basically uses heat to dry the dough while broiling is concentrating the heat while keeping moisture in.
