Maypop is a true passionfruit, and the leaves are actually used as a substitute for Prozac by some. Leaves and fruits are a win.

All you'd need is a glassed box, doesn't have to be spiffy, and a way to make it vent into the bottom of the dehydrator. Holes drilled in the bottom and it sits on the top of the glass box output would easily be enough. Glass box has similar holes drilled in it's bottom to let air in, and in it's top to let air out.

This is basically the same idea I had for converting a file cabinet into a solar dehydrator, but your starting point is much better.
Pearl Sutton wrote:Yes, you absolutely can.
Give us some good pictures so we can see how it's made, and we can give you better advice about holes etc.
Betsy Carraway wrote:Hi, for Diane Kistner: Maypop (passiflora Incarnata, or just "passiflora") is safe and popular herbal throughout Europe, Central and South America, and maybe more; it is commonly used as an extract, tea, or in capsules, for anxiety issues, insomnia, and even babies' colic. It is not only quite effective and lacking in any side effects, but safe at any dose, even for babies. So you may wish to collect the mature Summer leaves, before fruit formation, and dry them in shade for use as tea or powdered.

If you wanted to start a thread telling how to do that, I would be very grateful. I have an instant pot I've never used.
