Hi everybody,
I am a fan of sesame seeds & like to soak them in water to remove enzyme inhibitors, phytic acid, polyphenols, etc. After soaking, I place them in a big round Nesco FD-1040 1000-watt Gardenmaster Food Dehydrator (it looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Nesco-FD-1040-...ood+dehydrator). The process of getting the seeds in & out of the dehydrator is tedious & wasteful. I use a spoon to delicately move them take the seeds in & out of the dehydrator. However, they scatter inside & outside of the machine. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make the process more efficient?

I dry seeds in a similar dehydrator. On top of the "fruit roll-up trays". Then I dump the tray out into an extra large bowl. Then into the jars that I store them in.
