Sea cucumber drying process
1.Sea cucumber cuts its mouth and squeezes its intestines. Clean the sea cucumber with clear water, cut a 3cm hole with scissors from its abdomen, remove the internal organs and intestines. If the intestines are not removed, the whole sea cucumber will melt away
2. Clean. Sea cucumber is generally difficult to clean, so after taking out the viscera, it needs to be cleaned repeatedly.
3. Cooking and salt mixing: put the cleaned sea cucumber into a pot at about 90℃ for cooking, and use tools to stir back and forth to prevent uneven water temperature. At this time, the sea cucumber shrank rapidly and its thorns were obviously prominent. After half an hour, take out the sea cucumber and mix in the coarse salt as the case may be.
Phnix dryer-sea cucumber drying process
Put the sea cucumber on the tray, put it in the drying room, start the sea cucumber dryer, set the temperature, humidity, time and other parameters, and then start the automatic drying. Note: if they are common salt dried sea cucumbers, the temperature can be slightly higher; if they are high-quality light dry or pure light dry sea cucumbers, it can use the cold air drying mode, and the drying equipment temperature can be set at 10-30 ℃.
