Dehydrating fruits?

My GCC seems to really like dehydrated fruits and veg. I do not have a dehydrator and was wondering how to do this for her without one. Any recipes/instruction would be greatly appreciated.

the oven

take fruit, cut it small. then place it on a baking pan or sheet and set the oven on the lowest temperature. then let them bake. it can take 4-12 hours, depending on the fruit. you can dip the fruit in orange or lemon juice before drying to prevent it from browning and it is a natural preservative

I tried the oven thing and my fruit was like a crisp in about 10 minutes, I'd had it set low and everything, haven't a clue what happened there!
