I have tried a couple of different approaches, wasn't reall keen on either one. First, I thought like most things if I put them someplace warm they'd dry faster, so I tried the oven on very very low temp. That didn't seem to work. So next I tried in the freezer, well, that just froze them but didn't dry them and I had to worry about them sweating. I just put them up on a shelf out of harms way and let them dry. Maybe that's why they say to make them far enough in advance to have them ready!
