Drying the melons was really easy.
Peel the melons, and slice them about 1/2 inch thick
Toss them with a little sugar. For three small melons we used about 3/4 cup sugar.
Lay them out on cookie sheets
Dry them in a very low oven overnight. We set the oven dial to just barely on (about 125 degrees)
Turn them and then let them dry on the other side for several hours.
We ended up with something sweet and chewy that tasted a bit like the dried mango that you get in a prepackaged trail mix. Over all it was a fun experience.
