http://practicalaction.org/practicalanswers/produc.....ucts_id=88 You have to create an account. It is a fantastic site that shows many practical solutions but usually designed for developing countries.

I found the following online - but it's at the Blue Peter end of the technology scale.

"Made from two cardboard boxes, some clear plastic wrap, and a little tape."

Maybe useful as a trial run?

I think that Heath Robinson solar dehydrator is brilliant.

A very good find, Mrs B. Thank you. Shame that our UK "summer" is more or less over but I look forward to trying it. Have bookmarked the link.
