this time of year with the humidity it will be a hard task to get them cracker dry that way. even in a dehydrator if they aren't sealed as they come out they will not stay cracker dry, ime anyway.
how dry were they when you put them in the desicant chamber? is the desicant totally dry when you put them in the chamber?
the dehydrator has become my best friend when it comes to drying, then immediately sealing them up.

Your desiccant chamber needs to be COMPLETELY sealed...if their not dry enough, then their not in there long enough, or theres not enough desiccant. Put them in a larger container with more surface area and more desiccant.
