Experiments in making watermelon candies were carried out in an integrated three-in-one
solar device having utility as a water heater and as a cooker and dryer, with built in thermal storage to
keep the dehydration process continuous during night by heated water. Watermelon crush
poured on small trays, was heated in cooking mode and then dehydrated by using the same
device in drying mode. The hot water provided energy to continue the drying process during
the night. It took 28 hours to dehydrate the watermelon crush. The dried pulp could then be rolled
into the form of spherical candies. -text taken from paper
