    Or simply grind the dried leaves to a fine powder, mix into a small amount of coconut oil, add to melted dark unsweetened chocolate to make a thick sauce.
    Use the sauce as a base for many desserts.

    I guess having it as tea is kind of predictable, but that is my favourite

    What brand of dehydrator do you have? Is it any good?

    Hi reeeen4 our's is a Lumina has 5 drying racks I think our daughter may have bought it from Aldi all push button digital settings had no trouble with it. Only fault for me is the trays holes are a bit big for chillis but you can buy inserts with smaller holes these are on our to do list. Hope this helps . Dave

    Thanks Wedgetail for the information I'll keep my eyes out at Aldi! I've been wanting a dehydrator for ages! :)
